When PHPDN goes down I ...
melt into a puddle of self despair and contemplate suicide until it comes back up 6%  6%  [ 4 ]
cry like a baby missing his mother until it comes back up 8%  8%  [ 5 ]
keep hitting F5 every two to three minutes thinking it is a cache issue until it comes back up 26%  26%  [ 17 ]
keep working but come back every now and again until it comes back up 46%  46%  [ 30 ]
go on with my life because in the end, PHPDN is not an addiction of mine 14%  14%  [ 9 ]

So let say that by some odd chance the entire PHP Developer's Network for some reason goes down hard (not that this would ever happen :roll: ). What do you do when there is no PHPDN?

I've been extremely busy with work, so i've probably only checked two or three times. =]
Luckily for my sanity it wasn't during a slow time.

1. Watch the productivity of programmers around the world increase.
2. Watch tons of newbies give up because they get stuck and have nowhere to turn for answers.

Luckily, there's a methadone clinic near my house. I've also taken up smoking and cold showers.

And I've never been so up to date on my email & RSS feeds!

... If it goes down, I'm blaming you, Everah.
You've jinxed us all. :(


Although, whenever it does go down, I always get more work done. It's easier to answer other people's questions then it is to deal with my own elaborate glitches that are too complex to bother asking about. ;_;

Boy, I know what you mean there, superdezign! In my case, it's probably not the complexity of my problems as much as it is my denseness. I rationalize by saying that when you're too close to the problem, you can't see it in perspective.

Totally serious. I'd snap a photo if my hands would stop shaking.

I admit to being an F5 pusher. Out of stubbornness. And disbelief.

I assume we're talking about the you-know-what with MySQL on that-day-in-the-past. ;) I think the F5 survived, I can't say the same for the [F] function button which is needed to enable the Function keys to start with on my ultra-stupid media keyboard. I hate that with a vengeance.

Oh my god I hated that too. These days you get to pay more to get a keyboard without that poop.

So why is DevNet going down? Are we hammering the server too hard :P
