Man, I was close on that last contest.

Here is my attempt to win this new one.

We're back! Posted 3/2/2004.

Looking back Your last post was on 1/2/2004. So I believe ATS went down on 1/2/2004 and was back up 3/2/2004.

I hope I understood the question and got the correct answer

Oh man I sound like an idiot. lol. Thanks for featuring me, anyway Skeptic
.

lmao @ your reactions. "CRAP! it's GONE! DELETED!". "Your first reaction should be alcohol." Thanks for the reinactment. lol

I'm trying to do some searching for the contest, but I just get this stuff:



Warning: mysql_num_rows(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/abovetopsecret/public_html/forum/misc-n.php on line 354
Warning: mysql_fetch_array(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/abovetopsecret/public_html/forum/misc-n.php on line 388


Is this a problem still left over from the server problem, or is it just me? Thx.

Dangit Loam,

I just found that thread myself....hoping it's not the one


I came to post it as my entry and saw you already found it.

Only two posts in the thread mention the downtime however...one by muzz who says

"Whats up with the break in service inbetween September 22, 2002, and October 11, 2002? Was there Server down time? "

and SO's reply to him.

Good work.

From your second link on the post history it shows the site was also down or at least showing zero posts Jan 24th - Jan 28th, 2003.

peace


edit: found info about the January 2004 downtime....

ATS IS UNDER ATTACK
The month of January closed out with ATS under a distributed denial of service attack.

Cant access the link though...says access denied...

Though, technically, I should add that there is a single post made October 6, 2002, making the longest span really September 22, 2002 thru October 5, 2002. After the 6th, there were an additional 5 days.

Damn, loam got it I think. Was just talking with JB1 and shadow in chat, and they reminded me of this. Was really easy to find the threads, a quick search for "downtime" gave you practically everything you needed to know.

Pity, I might've had it had I remembered. Wait, no, I wouldn't have, I was partying when he posted.
loam: 100,000 ATS points Amory: 42 Life Points

PS - Had forgotten about the posthistory link, though.

Does SO's silence on this mean the correct answer has not been provided yet?

loam.

I'm pretty sure you are 100,000 points richer than you were before.

Wait! I just realized I am 100000 points richer.... What?!!? No confetti? Whistles? Bells?





When did I actually get those?

EDIT: This is like not knowing you won the lottery and the organizers stuff the winnings under your mattress when your not looking or at home....
