Downtime February 13, 2006 1:09 PM   Subscribe

Sorry about the downtime today, it looks like some comment spammers were DoSing the box with requests for long-dead trackback URLs. After that was cleaned up, some other weird bugs kept the server unavailable for a few hours, but things should be back to normal now.

AxMe is up, alive, shitless mouth.

Speaking of which:

That other thread made me realize, to my horror, that I have a long-hidden fetish for shitting in lifeless corpse's mouths.

Do I call a shrink, or do I get a job in a mortuary? So much to ponder.

Crummy morning, Matt. Do you have a beer fund for contributions? I bet you need one. :)

Now *there*'s a question for AxMe.

AskMe seems to have a special Valentine lover; it's still getting a massage.

I took the jabber server down while I worked on this. Once everything is completely back to normal, I'll turn it back on.

You took the time to apologize for someting that's not even your fault.

It's all good.

You presume too much. He was up all goddam night driving around and egging comment spammers' houses and hitting on their girlfriends and failing to tip those among them who moonlight at local late-night diners. I wasn't there, mind you, but I understand that he even killed one and shat in the mouth of the lifeless corpse thereof.

His uppance has merely come!

3) So does Matt. Thanks, Matt.

Create a sockpuppet and he'll get $5. Make it a joke username, like "Mefi's Masseur" and you can.. er.. what's the point of doing that?

and he kept honking the squeaky-horn on his recumbant bike, just again and again and again, huh-HONK, huh-HONK, huh-HONK

you could see the spammers eyes twitchin' something fierce
