Old thoughts on the site being down
Monday, May 22, 2006

I was driving back home one evening last week, singing to the Buffy soundtrack when I remembered that I had once done a parody of one of the songs but I couldn't think what or where. Then it clicked that I'd done something after the official site went down for aaaages....

I can't find the original (I wish Google would search the copied version of the site) but as best as I can remember and improvising where I can't...

Every single day the same arrangement
We go out and write the fight.
Suddenly today, a strange estrangement
Pages not displayed, broken links in sight.
We all need the host to show our posts,
Just hoping it's not toast.

We're just going for the refresh
Clicking it in vain.
Starting to make River look quite sane.

It was always here and so delightful
Now we find we're all alone.
Suddenly the site has turned so spiteful,
Why can't it be shown?
Have Haken's fuses blown?

We've got tales to tell, and things to yell,
But this pain we can't quell.

We're just going for the refresh
Needing it right now
Calling our computer a right cow.

Will it stay this way forever?
A Wash-like end to our endeavour?
Call IT or someone clever,
We don't want to be...

Going for the refresh
Hoping it's alright.
And we can't even read
The treehouse thread we need
And we just want to see
The siiiiiiiite.

I like your song, SimonWho. Didn't you do one for the Edinburgh Film Festival website crashing too?

My other favourite website (which is sooo much more geeky than any science fiction one that I won't mention its name) has not only crashed, I've just discovered it's been hacked and destroyed and all records lost and moved and generally not good.

So write some more diary entries so we can all be entertained on this site... you should do another list of 10 things you want, see how many you get this time!
