Aldie's Full of Love!
mbmb
Hi Y'all

Once again I apologize for the massive underestimate of downtime this weekend. As you can see we're back up and running (albeit slowly). Unfortunately I need to get some sleep before I can tackle the problems that the new setup is causing.

Please have patience - we will get the kinks worked out.

Oh, and a bonus - no silly April Fool's prank this year (I think).

Thanks for your efforts and dedication!

I can feel your pain Aldie. That's why I prefer programming to systems admin. I'd much rather cause problems then have to fix them

I've had my days when I was ready to see if a server could fly. Get some sleep, I don't think anyone suffered permanent damage from the downtime.

Time to round out the microbadges.

Thank you admins for doing so much to keep this great site up and running. I will gladly deal with some downtime every so often. Thanks again for helping me (and many others I am sure) keep my sanity.

I now comprehend GROGnard's posts shake

Thanks for all your hard work Aldie - we all really appreciate.

I'm just hoping someone took me seriously on BGG Down Group to have already started work on an anti-Sackson Server microbadge!

I feel your pain, Gnome. I had to mow and prep the garden. I tried to explain that I should continue to refresh in case BGG needed my help and was promptly cursed.

outages are good reminders that our lives should not completely revolve around boardgames (except for Aldie and his cohorts!)...

BGG.Com It's the only site I visit where it's a bigger sin to call someone a jackass than it is to be a jackass.

Maybe it's just me but I really like April Fool's Day around here. Big goofy fun and MICROBADGES for all.

+1 on this.

And as a permanent reminder of this day I suggest a broken easter egg microbadge
