  1. There are blogs here?!

    by , 13th March 2010 at 07:06 PM
    I never knew! Wow, the mysteries and secrets of Bulbagarden are neverending.

    So yeah. If this turns out to be anything like my old blog, I'll post entries sporadically, as my will to blog fades and my blog sputters out like a candle which has formed into more of a disc than a taper.

    So, let's see if I can make this Pokemon related. As we all know, HGSS comes out tomorrow. I am NOT getting it then. The reason being that I preordered a copy of HeartGold in Vermont and ...
  2. East Coast Storm, take three

    Coming in live from the outskirts of NYC borderlands (Staten Island).

    The land is being pummeled by rain and wind and flooding and trees and no lights. I fear for the roof; my roomie fears for the roof in a different way.

    At 18:54 EST, my house suffered its first blackout of the day. At 18:55 EST, the power came back. We rejoiced.

    If this breaks into tomorrow....sucks to be those who are going to Times Square's TRU event.
  3. IGCSEs

    Well, if you guys are English, you'll know what GCSEs are, if you're not, it's like an end of high school exam, or atleast I think..

    I'm hoping to do my Physics and Biology IGCSEs in May-June, I pray to god that I get an 'A*' it'll atleast bring a smile on my Parents' face after my dad was diagnosed with non ...

  4. Have I really been doing this shit for exactly one year now?

    by , 13th March 2010 at 06:41 PM (The Live Wire)
    Well, yes.

    I've come a long way from the planning of a blog with repeated updates throughout the day, a blog that updates once or twice a day everyday (except for that one day the tech guys failed), "that is all", inspiring others to blog a lot as well, repeated ripping on the tech guys and/or vBulletin, and whatever it qualifies as now. I've pissed people off, had people rip me off, gained some respect among others, and lots of other crazy shit. "Fairly unknown" ...
  5. Scary server load is scary

    For the record, since people are going to wonder....

    The addition of the 3rd server wasn't enough, basically. Well, not for the HGSS launch in any case, it's fine for how we are normally.

    To break it down, with only 2 servers, we handled our regular load during the week fine, but when we hit the weekly peak load, you'd get the 503's. With 3 servers, we have CPU load to spare, but when we hit weekly peak load...we're still fine, barely.

    But this isn't ...
