I don't know what that was that just nuked the board (and the rest of the server) but we're looking into it. Holy traffic tonight, though. Nice to see the excitement.

jj - I posted in the Temple thread that there were 134 folks here right after the game.

Could have been a bunch of posts at once, but the board has handled much more traffic in the past. Something ended up hanging, though, and we had to reboot the server.

Happened again yesterday evening also, during the NCAA Selection Show. Seems the heavy traffic is too much to handle.

Mike - Might be time to push for another round of donations and put the money towards a new server (or whatever other backend component is needed for you and jj to get this fixed) since we may be seeing more and more people not just during this NIT run, but in the next few years.

I can only imagine what might have happened yesterday if UMASS had been called. "We broke the internet."

I don't think it's a $$$ thing, Brian. It seems to be a fluke. An ill-timed fluke, however. We're keeping our eyes on it.

Well it looks like it happened twice, that's why I thought it might be a bottleneck issue. Donations might not be a bad thing regardless!

$$$ in Mike's jar is never a bad thing- that much is for sure!
