Hey guys, can you do us all a favour?

Most users ever online was 438, so when we get server busy messages, please dont sit there hitting refresh over and over, it just takes longer to come back on. 438 x 10 squillion refreshes a second- you can do the maths

Instead i have some suggestions, you'll have something else to talk about when the server stops sulking!
1. go make some tea
2. go find a traffic cone
3. get some food
4. try another sub forum (eg. about or academic)
5. ring a friend and go to a pub (if old enough)
6. go and test-drive a red sports car
7. go shopping and super glue ten grocery items together into one giant item, and wait in the express line at the supermarket.
8. go play some golf and hit a hole in one, i want witnesses!
9. go to the top of a tall building on campus or elsewhere, then hit all the buttons in a crowded elevator on the way down.
10. invent an imaginary friend. call him d. let nature take its course.
11. try to wear a suit of armor through a metal detector.
12. go and train all the squirrels in the park to do your fiendish bidding.

or... you could do some work?

none other!

but it was still people hitting refresh over and over that caused them to get that, and also causing me to give up on posting anything.

Oh whoops, I press refresh about 20-30 times a minute sometimes. Will try to limit that now. But it is ironic that this comes from as Elpaw says the guy who created the biggest server message boom.

i dont think subforums work in a blackout, if the server gets knocked out, the whole site (including any subforums, but not including chat) get knocked out.

Oh was wondering where you'd disappeared to. Thought you'd gone in hiding for a bit.

i still reckon the cup of tea idea is the best.

although you missed one idea ollie- go and find an entire new outfit complete with pair of shoes (i wouldn't even need to go shopping. lol... just tidy my rrom and find shopping bags :rolleyes: )

as for doing work... that si the most ridiculous thing you have ever suggested.

Surely someone who is described as omnipresent would rather the unbiased posts of elpaw over something from bono/Maskall.

Yeah, that's the idea you use, isn't it? What about running around your garden three times, then coming back to finding the server hopefully back on again.

Yeah, I have, but it's practice for when I have to have football practices or matches out in the cold or rain. Reminds me, I have to check the forcast for tomorrow, in hope for finding lovely (well at least not too cold and wet) weather.
