Dreadknux’s Dairies: … The Storm. Bugger.

The whole of February must have been, in all honesty, the most arse-holic month I’ve had. And that’s a bad thing. Most definitely. It’s a bloody good job I didn’t take my vacation when I was thinking about it.

Without any word of warning, TSS was not online. Anymore. Simple as that. Tried typing in the URL – www.sonicstadium.org – you get nothing but 404 Errors. Talk about racking my brain: I had a huge suspicion that it was a relapse of pseudo-pre-teen, “Look-at-me-I’m-a-hacker-honest-even-though-all-I-do-is-spam-your-emails” business.

I was wracking my brains trying to figure this out – and a backup of the SSMB was not readily available (the latest was October 2002!). To sum up: in every sense of the word, “bugger”.

But, adding to the stress even more was that, although I put the reason down to hacker-ism, I didn’t honestly know the real reason why the site went kaput. A real mystery.

So, ‘a wreck’: that’s about the best way you could describe me this month.

And no, those “Where the feck’s TSS? What have you done, you weirdo?” emails were NOT helping. ~_~
