Someone give him an EpiPen shot in the neck like in the movie K2, and put him back on his wheel.



Edited because apparently I can neither spell very well nor use the spell checker function.

it's kind of like a hamster, but smaller. RC.com uses hampsters to power all of it's servers. They run on rubberbands and power the site.

OMG I KNOW!!1 EARLIER TODAY IT HAD GOTTEN SO BAD THAT I WAS REALLY DESPERATE FOR SOMETHING THAT RESEMBLED ROCKLIMBING.COM. I WAS IN REALLY BAD SHAPE, AND IN A MOMENT OF DESPERATION I FINALLY WENT OUT AND BREATHED REAL OUTSIDE AIR WHILE CLIMBING IN THE SUNSHINE. OH THE HORRAH!1 IT WAS ALL DIRTY AND ANALOG AND TOTALLY GROSS!1

i'd bet with six million dollars that we could rebuild this "hampster," make him better, stronger, faster (insert bionic man sound effect that will soon be dubbed into the next techno rave song here).

Really folks, If I were and advertiser, I'd be seriously questioning the efficacy of giving money to a site that cannot get it's act together. I know you are on a shoestring budget but some things need immediate attention. Think of RC.com as a store with interminably long checkout lines that the managment seems unwilling to address. If given a choice, customers will go elsewhere.

Just make sure you keep the people at Spraygraphics happy... I'd sure hate to lose the nipple girl.

It's been since Sunday for me ... has the site been down? Without reading the whole story about the new site, when can we expect to turn over to the new servers?

I am haunted by images of the sexy nipple girl. I know I'm the one to whom she directs her longing gaze.

We're aiming to get into beta testing end of August, so it will be some time after that.

It's taken me 3 days to access the front page, and once I finally got here, another 45 minutes to get to the 2nd page of this thread! :evil:

I think this is their new idea for improving the quality of the posts around here. By adding the 15 minute delay between hitting “reply” and the reply page popping up, and another 20 minutes after hitting send, maybe we’ll put more thought into our responses and type more literate, lucid, constructive posts.



Tee Hee Hee... Nipple.


Obviously I have learned nothing from this exercise.

maybe if the hamster spent more time running on the wheel and less time staring at the nipple he would get more work done.

I tried to post here this morning but , it took hours to get on!!!!

Yeah its been slow....looks like Chicago and L.A. were having some problems also. If you do a trace on the IP address below, you'll see the hops and the milliseconds its taking.... type this....tracert 216.240.150.146 and hit , and you'll see all of the slow connections up to the IP.
