    Personally, CW being down grinds my gears more.

    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    I wasn't actually told things were getting strained until yesterday, when the problems really started occurred. If I knew this weeks ago, I would have acted sooner. No matter what you or others might think, I work really hard to keep things as stable as possible, and give 100%.

    It comes down more to there being so many threads with thousands and thousands of posts in them which puts a constant strain on the database. As I developed all the database work around the flash games, I was able to control that better, and consider load, etc on that particular database.

    AWTA.

    I was cozying upto this girl, and things got very steamy. And we moved into the empty corridor in our office and started making out. Suddenly, my eyes noticed the bloody camera on the top of the door staring at us. Boy, I got a shiver so huge that I woke up in a cold sweat in my bed. Thank god, it was just a DREAM!!

    The next day I went to office, this girl came and spoke to me, and am like WTF. She notices my discomfort and asked me why. I managed to stave off the temptation thanks to my premonition really.

    Yeah, AWTA.

    I think we can make exceptions for some people that might think that way, tbh.

    No names.

    Although there's still downtime, it has approved a little I'd say. I've got a window open on my computer that I'm looking at constantly to keep an eye on things, and can restart a couple of services before things really go crazy. I don't think there's been more than 15 minutes of downtime straight in the past 24 hours due to me doing this.

    I've asked for an ETA on the server upgrade too. Trust me, there's no one who this annoys more than me, and I'm keeping on top of it as best I can. I would really hope that by mid week, everything should be running faster than ever before when the upgrade is completed.

    I'll certainly keep everyone updated via that thread in the Downtime forum, and I'm more than happy to answer any questions over MSN that anyone may have.
