    #2 2 years ago

    #3 2 years ago

    Too many pins plugged in and blew a fuse.

    #10 2 years ago

    I was starting to think my employer figured out where all my time was going and blocked the site...phew that was close.

    #11 2 years ago

    What caused the site to go down?

    Quoted from Darcy:

    i started uploading pix again

    #13 2 years ago

    Yeah... I actually had to talk to the family. And even contemplated going outside for a little while.

    #14 2 years ago

    Fhew, thankfully thats over...

    #15 2 years ago

    Welcomeback!

    Quoted from Pinzap:

    I actually had to talk to the family

    Did that too.

    #17 2 years ago

    I found it refreshing, nice break from all the bantering and whining

    #18 2 years ago

    I watched 3 seasons of GOT while it was down!

    #19 2 years ago

    I was worried I'd lose my streak, and I'm sure many others were too!
    Gotta be the most dedicated addict of them all!

    #20 2 years ago

    My wife said "who are you?"

    #21 2 years ago

    Bout time. I missed all you people.

    Quoted from labnip:

    Did the basement sump pump fail? Flooding the server?

    #23 2 years ago

    I went down to the basement and Played Zaccaria Hot Wheels on my MAME cabinet. I am now #2 in the world playing Hot Wheels in "Lamp Hunter" mode! If Pinside hadn't gone down, that never would have happened.

    Have you noticed some peoples days are shorter then ours?

    This is the list from 165 days ago:

    178 days Namsan
    173 days mschonbrun
    170 days teekee
    169 days Pimp77
    169 days eggbert52
    169 days toyotaboy
    169 days chipleader
    169 days Nate
    169 days djblouw
    169 days ulmpharmd
    169 days Mr_Freshie
    169 days MotorCityMatt
    169 days codered9394
    168 days jeffspinballpalace

    The top 3 at that time must have missed a day, because Namsan, mschonbrun and teekee are no longer on the list.

    But somehow INDY5MIKE, BEAGLEPUSS, EGGBERT52 and SILVERBALLZ numbers of days has gone up more then others. I believe that has happened to others also.

    Quoted from Darcy:

    Did the basement sump pump fail? Flooding the server?

    A long time ago on a contract job, I had a problem with a database application. The app had a memory leak which caused a server crash. I went back into the server room with the 'business leader' in tow. I rebooted the server and commented that
    'it's a slow leak; we should be good for a few days until we fix the problem'. The response was hysterical.

    Squinting very hard at the server the non-tech leader said, 'Well that's good... we don't want anything leaking out in HERE!'.

    Truth!

    It's funny when this happens. I reboot my ipad, try my laptop, reboot my router, check other sites to see if they work . Pinside can't be offline. Something else must be wrong.

    #28 2 years ago

    Amazing. No one mentioned playing pinball.

    #30 2 years ago

    I checked in 2 hrs ago .. I had to up date my Kodi app on my Firestick. Later

    #31 2 years ago

    It is those shiny metal balls that roll around those 24 wooden boxes that you have...

    I painted the house, raised a barn, and read the entirety of the Hyperion Cantos in 4 different languages. Funny what you can get done when you can't browse Pinside for a while.

    All right Johnny. That's enough horsing around. Plug that back in so Robin and Martijn can get Pinside back up.

    It sure was, sorry about that! But all should be working fine again. Normally there are some failsafes that kick in when the server goes down, but they didn't work for some reason which I'm still investigating.
