What?! No April 1st games?

It's good to be back. Hook up that BGG I.V. again, Sam.

This outage made me realise how much I value BGG. The first thing I did when the site came back up was to become a patron!

I've never been more bored on a weekend before. Instead of learning about games I actually had to...GASP! PLAY THEM!?zombie

I've only been on BGG for 6 months, but wow I thought I was the only one who felt so lonely while the site was down. Damn. Glad we made it.

That was a truly horrible experience (speaking purely selfishly), but I don't begrudge you the necessary time required to maintain such an awesome site.

Thanks for what must have been way too much work for far too short a period of time.

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

This is like a B-movie ending.

We all fell into each others arms, crying, but happy that it is all over now. The bad Sackson-server is dead, the BGG-world is saved.

I love happy endings meeple

But ... what is that ... ? After the credits, there is another scene in this movie: with an eerie music, the camera shows the server rack and it zooms in on a little server which blinks with diabolic red LEDs ... CUT!!!

Is this the foreshadow of a sequel??? devil

I think I must've checked to see if we were back 50+ times. I couldn't even log in when I first got the site back today, but I was just happy to see it!

The outage was brutal. I had a delivery confirmation number I wanted to add to a trade I shipped and I couldn't do it. I am amazed how frustrating that was to me. I had to add that number - I mean - what if the game arrived without me having the number logged in so my trade patnber could track his package! Such a travesty of my trade etiquette!

Plus, I missed just browsing arounf and reading cool stuff.

Outage sucked. Hurt a few sales at the store but life goes on.

At least the speed is back to normal.

I think it must be a sign that the Great Outtage occured on my first free weekend in a couple of months. The weekend formed a disturbing pattern.

Wakeup. Fire netbook up en route to bathroom. Check the geek. Press F5. Brush teeth. Press F5. Shave. Press F5. Stagger downstairs, switch desktop on, check the geek. Have breakfast. Press F5. Catch up on the Big Bang Theory. Press F5. Go to newsagent for a newspaper. Press F5 on return, before taking shoes or jacket off. Press F5. Go back and lock front door. Return to desktop and press F5. Watch last week's Homeland. Press F5. Do the washing up. Press F5. Reorganise the freezer. Press F5. Hoover downstairs. Press F5 after hoovering each room... it just went on and on.

On the upside, my house is going to be remarkably tidy for when my guests arrive on Saturday to play Arkham Horror, everything out of date is gone from the fridge, that dodgy shelf in the downstairs loo has been fixed, there's not a single item of dirty laundry anywhere in the house (including guest bedding, towels and that cleaning cloth I found down behind the washing machine), I managed to find four and a half hours to read all three Hunger Games novels in and I realised just how bad daytime television is on a weekend.

I managed to distract myself with yardwork for half a day, then ended up playing Chinatown, Thunderstone, and some Gin Rummy. It was tough, but I made it through!

I agree. I am still very proud of my "I was part of the great Imagemod GG bug of 2008" microbadge.
