    Not sure what caused it, but the server was suffering massive errors that led to damage of the database and failure of the site. Obviously this came at a bad time as I'm not online much, and didn't realize there was a problem until last night.

    With the help of roy7 (more like, me typing in commands in the server console that he rattled off at me, I'm a good monkey), we're back online and don't seem to be suffering any ill effects anymore. Meaning no lost data, etc. etc.

    BP is outgrowing its server, and that's going to be a problem in the future. But for the time being, we're back online, and I apologize for any inconvenience.

    Until I get my laptop back, I can be reached at buckeyeplanet(at) (with thanks to ex-wolverine for supplying the gmail access). Please email me there if there are more site problems, but I'm 99% sure we're covered now.

    I'm just glad that we're back up and running. Great job getting it going again.

    Thank God...I was about to call a hotline for emotional support

    Why do I have the mental image of everyone rushing in here to post like a rush for Cabbage Patch Kids in Toys R Us

    I was in a crisis about getting by week6 picks in on time. I finally got above .500 for the year!

    Might be good time to hit some people up for some donations to the 'upgrade server' fund while everyone is still suffering form their withdrawal symptoms.

    Clarity... why don't you just leave the paypal icon up all year long that way when people like myself do actually get money we can send you some. I think you should still have the fundraisers in the spring and fall though

    Yeah... I liked the pissed off penguin!!

    Vlad the Impaler is way cooler than penguin beast. It'll probably be back soon though. Along with another of my favorites, the Dorsey...
