Well that was unexpected

This is where all the posts that appeared on the old front page (June '04 - January '05) are stored (back when the site was run using IPB Portal).

Never thought the Tara Reid pics would get so much attention. Heck, i didn't even <i>look</i> at the pics until like, 9 hours after i first posted them.

As a result of being linked by <A HREF="http://gawker.com" target="_blank">gawker</A>, <A HREF="http://defamer.com" target="_blank">defamer</A>, <A HREF="http://fleshbot.com" target="_blank">fleshbot</a>, <A HREF="http://tonypierce.com" target="_blank">tonypierce</A>, <A HREF="http://www.socialitelife.com/" target="_blank">socialitelife</A>, <A HREF="http://whatevs.org" target="_blank">whatevs</A> (aka "the big boys") AND <A HREF="http://technorati.com/cosmos/search.htm ... tright.com" target="_blank">all these other sites</A>, fubar practically slowed down to a <i>crawl</i> under the immense traffic. It happens.

Anyhow, the pics are now hosted offsite so that should probably take the load off the server and make the site a little more surfable. In any case, the hoopla surrounding Tara's frankenboobie should die down after a coupla more days and things will be back to normal around here. Speedwise. Content wise you're still going to be screwed since i'm still going to be too lazy to actually write 'proper posts'.

Oh and in light of recent events, i think we're gonna upgrade to a dual xeon server to handle the site. So if i ever do stumble upon another 'scoop', things won't be grinding to a halt around here anymore. Hopefully.

Other than that, nothing much else to report.

Don't forget to tune in to FOX tonight and catch the first episode of <A HREF="http://www.fox.com/bigfat/" target="_blank">My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss</A> at 9pm (EST), which, looks to be just as good as My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance. God i love these new 'con' reality shows. So cruel.

Oh and Halo 2 baby! It's coming. And i'll be waiting in line at midnight, 12:01am, Tuesday November 9th.

And so will hundreds and thousands of other people across the nation i bet. It's going to be CRAZY. And the best part is, my Advanced Video Production class is cancelled on Tuesday! So i'll be playing Halo 2 ALL DAY. Only stopping for food and bathroom breaks.

So. How many of you are actually going to call in sick or skip your classes on Tuesday?

Man, I hated this site being slow so recently. It's not as slow now, thankfully. It was a bitch trying to surf FUBAR yesterday...

Damn it, JSD... Ooooh, I almost had it....

Stupid asian.

I got my &#036;5 preorder from GameStop back a few weeks ago, cuz I will be at Best Buy Monday night (starting around 8pm) getting my copy at midnight ^_^

I'm sure they will have plenty of copies, but I still wanna remember the night I bought it. Kinda like when I waited all night (about 7 hours) at Best Buy to get my playstation2 when it first came out :o

i have mine paid in full at gamestop. that way i can just walk in and pick it up and leave.

i think you get to wait in the faster VIP line if you have it paid in full.

5 dollar preorderers have to wait in the slow ass line.

it's going to be cold out there at midnight (here in michigan at least). bundle up!

I am missing all TV shows because of fucking essay writing.

But the show sounds amusing.
