SportsFilter is offline temporarily while the database is full; we hope to have it fixed by Wednesday afternoon.

Is the database itself full? The error I was getting looked like the logs, not the db, were filling things up.

I love how we are able to comment about a post that (essentially) says we can't comment on posts.

I love that this is a Football post....since SpoFi is all screwed up, I can only presume we are referring to the Association variety??

This must become the most commented post in SportsFilter history. 3147 live forever.

salmacis: just a total cheap shot to stir shit up on what will be a slow news day...all in jest

I'm looking forward to a San Jose vs Tampa Bay final. NOT. If that were to happen, I'd call it the "Swimming Pool Series" -- cause that's how the ice will be for the whole series.

bad news for the Olympics

The fact that you can comment on this post would suggest that the problem has been fixed. However, our hosting service refuses to answer my e-mails.

Let's fire her up, and see if she purrs.

posted by garfield at 09:18 AM on May 05

Fire at will! (please please please work, I have a light work load today).

She's purring nicely. <izzard>That's not purring! Those cats are drilling!</izzard>

posted by billsaysthis at 09:42 AM on May 05

posted by gspm at 09:45 AM on May 05

are we still talking about work sucking? because my yesterday was the suckiest suck that ever sucked. I'm going home to bed.

...the "Swimming Pool Series" -- cause that's how the ice will be for the whole series. And the ice at Joe Louis isn't like that? Please.

I don't know what's going on at CFDynamics. They used to offer good service, but two months ago they bitched me out for using their "SOS pager" instead of the support e-mail account. And now they're not answering support mail. I'm moving this baby to PHP/MySQL (with all of the data) as soon as possible.

For the next two weeks, I am going to be the biggest Calgary Flames fan in my apartment. No dis on the Sharks, but really. And the Lightning have to beat the Flyers like the scumbags from hell that they are. Fuck Roenick and his I'm-the-toughest-bastard-on-skates routine and fuck Esche and his 30-foot rebounds and inability to catch anthing that doesn't hit him in the mask. I hope Andreychuk, Lecavalier and St. Louis cash in large on their sorry carcasses and send them home in Mason jars. (Sorry. Bitter. Nowhere to vent. Thanks, I feel better now.) So, rcade, what can we do to help? Want a few bucks for parts & labor? Bake sale? Steroid business on the side? I can hook you up, brother. Say the word.* Note: I can't hook you up. But seriously. What help do you need? This is two posts. I know.

Gah! I'm choking on my own rage here. Hey rcade, I'd like to contribute some funds for the upgrade to, let me know.

That should be "two", not "to".

posted by vito90 at 11:15 AM on May 05

That should be "as well", not "two"

posted by vito90 at 11:16 AM on May 05

Thank, rcade. I too would be willing to participate in a fundraiser, googleads, or Men of SpoFi calendar.

I just love the irony of someone with the nickname "BigCalm" freaking out in the first comment ;)

Has anybody else seen "The Battle of Algiers" yet?

posted by NoMich at 11:02 PM on May 05

I can do it again if you like.... (cackles evilly).

When ads go live here, the first thing we'll be doing is raising money for a dedicated server that hosts only SportsFilter. We'll put up a tip jar of some kind for members to pitch in, hoping that some of you can share a portion of your sportsbook winnings, black-market organ sales, and the like.

My checkbook is open.
