    During those 6 hours of downtime, I think I refreshed 60+ times...

    Don't worry, we are currently scheduling support group meetings for tonight in all time zones. Though maybe we can hope for some apology points :p

    Nothing like a partial fix before full withdrawal :)

    I just had the page open in a tab loading in Firefox all morning. Just watched the little dots go round and round for hours - somewhat hypnotizing.

    That's all? I think I almost broke my refresh.
    The site being down made me realize how much more I like it here. Things such as having conversations instead of that antiquated messaging system I had to use someplace else :rolleyes:. Big relief to wake up from my nap and find this place up again.

    Though sometimes that makes the symptoms worse, since you remembered how good it is

    I think that is a part of Randy's world tour, just adding a special session for milepoint addicts and how to deal with what happens during maintenance or when Amazon messes up

    I had to convince myself not to click anymore and limit it to one every 10-15 minutes...

    At least we have not reached the Y2K69 bug when all old pieces of software crash like they were supposed to for Y2K

    I had to take a nap because I couldn't stand the wait. You're right, it felt like forever.

    You were supposed to be refreshing constantly, pushing your computer to the limit ;)

    Stop thinking logically, you know that logic is banned from any and all online discussions :p

    I actually set up a program on my BB to continually try to open MP. Upon being successful it automatically signed me in and activated my "We are the Champions" ring tone.

    I got up to date with all the episodes of Celebrity Probation while Amazon's Cloud was down.
