Multi-Gigabit/second DDoS attack... check

Database spontaniously corrupts itself... check

No backups for popstrip server... check

Hopefully that explains why a month's worth of comments are gone. I appologize, but there's not much I could have done about it. Luckily, I had made a personal database backup a month ago - otherwise, multiple months of comments would have been lost. Several things had to go wrong at once for this happen, so at least it's unlikely to happen again.

I shouldn't complain. Things could be worse. The winters are ruthless here in Nebraska, but at least we don't get tsunamis. The only thing worst than a natural disaster with too many consonants is one that kills people. I just noticed that it happened on my birthday. I would have noticed earlier had I remembered I had a birthday.

Are you a script writer for Valve? People who player Portal 2 know why.

@swb, you think the winters are bad in Nebraska? Michigan doesn't even have spring. That's how bad it's over here.

could Lemon-god make a Lemon-Life so sour that He Himself could not tolerate it?

@swb I would sing 'happy birthday' to you, but 1) This is the puter and I'm not good at puters. 2) I don't feel like it. 3) Copyright infringement agents have been watching me like hawks lately. So, Happy day celebrating your mother having to push you out of her vag. I hope you appreciate her pain.

@swb Felicem tibi natalem diem!! And don't worry about the lemons of life... its better than getting a whole bunch of cherries... cause then it'd just be pit-a-ful. or at least your trash can would be.

Better the comments than the comics...

Well happy birthday, you should still give me lots of bonus points, and everyone needs to feel sorry for me since I'm sick. Like, puking my intestines every time I go to the bathroom sick.
