no i had it come up 2 but it only lasted a few minutes before going back the "FA is Temp....." screen

Well, maybe that means they're in the process of trying to bring the site back up. *shrugs* At this point, it's something different at least.

Since I'm sure we're all pretty much spamming the F5 key.

I know I am! I need my furry porn and I don't want to use e621!

I only F5'd once and tried an alternate browser in case Firefox's cache was giving me grief like when I tinker with my own website. I moderated myself!

This is just personal thoughts as an Information Technician (IT) though with no knowledge as to how much the people working there know what they are doing, nor knowing what equipment they are working with. I know personally that The Navy utilizes this technique and, generally, Has some of the most out dated equipment out there, ie. Windows XP and Vista. Just general concerns/advice. If I am wrong about anything I would be happy to hear from you.

Oh...I do highly expect that in some deep, dark bunkers, there are military grade computing equipment, just waiting for World War III to start...complete with Reel-to-Reel drives, out there.

Granted, I'd be far more worried about the fact that there are still air traffic control towers in operation to this day, operating with computers that still function off of vacuum tube tech. Why, you couldn't even run Windows 1.0 beta on one of those!

And with the mention of Fender writing about ogre porn, that means the hacker was Lord Farquad. He was even in a stomach! Given his disposition and if you slur his name just right... Yeah. Found the culprit.
I remember at the end of Shrek after Farquad was swallowed whole, during the singing part you see him with a match in the dragon's belly.
When I went to Universal Studios (I think it was Universal) they had a special movie on that isn't available on DVD. The only thing I remember was that Farquad's ghost was the villain.

In other words, this means that in Shrek canon Farquad was slowly and painfully disintegrated by stomach acid and his only remains is a pile of feces. That's going to fuck with me forever.

Well, it be me bedtime. I wish you all good days or nights, depending on your individual timezones, my good ladies, gents, and whatever-the-heck-else-there-is-online. :p

How bad is it that I'm refreshing the page every few minutes and still feeling that sense of loss knowing the site's still down?

There was a three month downtime? I must've missed out on that one, sounds rather impressive.

Just ask Sony. (And they had a whole lot more money to lose over those hacker attacks on the PlayStation network. I mean...even the on-line store couldn't operate. Talking millions. FA's probably more like thousands.)
