Life is pretty normal today

Live Blog: Downtime

with 144 comments

The site will be going down any minute now. Please standby.

I will be live blogging during the downtime, so come read or comment on this post if you get bored.

I’ll start by sharing one of my favorite videos with you

video via Youtube

Some of you mentioned that you can’t watch videos… and because I hadn’t thought this thing through very well, all I had prepared was two videos… I’ll figure something out

I just had a game of drawing with one of you on Flockdraw. Whomever that was, thanks for scribbling all over my stick figure.

For those of you without video, I found this pretty amusing

Picture link

Note to self: animated gifs loop forever

The picture over at Flockdraw is really coming together nicely. I think we should make a shirt out of it.

Here’s the other video I had planned on posting. My apologies to those that can’t view it.

via Youtube

Flockdraw update:

Here’s a snapshot of our drawing

I can relate – DearGirlsAboveMe

How about another gif? Kittens are ridiculously adorable

Here is another picture. Can you spot the error?

via ProbablyBadNews.com

BelaLugosi suggested some music, so I thought I’d post my recommendation

via Youtube

Circafan has also posted a song (by Circa Survive, surprise, surprise :) ) which you can check out below. Any other song suggestions?

Here is a fun fact:

Even though almost equal numbers of men and women spend time in the ocean, no one knows why sharks seem to prefer to attack men. In fact, nearly 90% of shark attacks have happened to men.

Man-eating shark indeed.

Hopefully the site will be back online in the next 15 minutes. Thanks for your patience; it has been fun hanging out with all of you.

  37. I think the website’s starting to get backed up again… we’ve been in the 1800000’s for days, and it seems like a bigger percentage of the posts are making it on the site. Check the algorithms plz.

    A. Commenter

    May 30, 2010 at 10:40 pm

    • I noticed the same thing. I have been checking how fast the site let the posts through for a little while now, and the last two months or so the posts have been going in at a steady pace of 9000 posts a day. Now we are at 9000 posts a week. If the post are going at this pace, it will take around nine to ten months for a post to go through. That ain’t right. I also noticed that you will now only let members of this site submit stories. Good job on that. Just trying to get things working smoothly Mek, no offence intended whatsoever. You’re doing a great job.

      Bela out.
