Server downtime

Post by exxos » Tue Apr 06, 2021 9:02 pm

Server has been down for the past few hours, Thankfully this was not down to anything I did for once!

Word on the street is that someone left a bottle of Lucozade next to Harry, and he drank the whole lot.. It made him super hyperactive to the point where spinning his wheel caused a lot of friction caused the whole thing to glow red hot.. It created a huge gravitational wave which sent the server back in time causing a massive explosion in tunguska...So finally that mystery is solved.

Thankfully Harry was cloned and now back on his wheel turning casually to generate power for the server. Lesson learned, don't leave Lucozade next to Hamsters!

Lurking on Facebook from my last sight of a post by him a day or so ago. I think he's steering clear of anything ST these days though on account of the Satan connection.

He may still own his mainboard scorching machine though.

Nope he was on FB a few days ago announcing he had a huge cache of Atari software and was locking for recommendation on a program to rip it. I wish Russ would return.. never ending entertainment. :coffee:

Not to mention a big boost for Exxos's marketing.
