    April 1st - Break the Record Results

    So, I know there were a lot more of you who tried to get online but couldn't. Just before the crash we were for sure at 211 users. I appreciate all of you trying to get on. Unfortunately, it was the database that crashed on us because of a little configuration problem. That's hopefully been taken care of for the future. In any case, I don't have a screenshot, but here are the 233 users that I was able to determine were logged in for this event:

    It was a lot of fun, and I was lucky and crashed on the SQL stuff right as I needed to go home anyway!

    Even though i was one of the members bounced during a 'renew,' i had great fun and look forward to anything else FC has in mind to put together in the future. I felt it brought us closer not only as gamers, but as members with P&PG's.

    got yourself a fancy new icon there soft-serve .

    It was fun. Maybe we need to sort of have a sign up sheet and a schedule next time so the bulk of the users aren't trying to long in at exactly 6:00 pm.

    Those of level 20-30 login at 6:00, levels 15-20 at 6:15, etc...

    Or get a new SQL? whatever that is.

    I agree, it was a lot of fun. I guess I have always just logged on in the past and went straight to my game forum without looking around too much, but I never knew there was a community option. What makes that especially embarrassing is that Farcaster was my most recent DM. This is a great service to the gaming community and 12 bucks is small price to pay to support this service (at least for me).

    The only problem I have is that I don't have Paypal because I closed my account a couple years back when it was hacked. It would be nice if there were alternative options to pay.

    I've had a couple of friends suffer due to PAYPALs mistakes. Trick i found was to use an account(credit, bank card, etc) with a small limit on it, or better yet, put a certain amount into $$ into PAYPAL directly, so you can tap from that. Of course, every time you sell something, $$ is added to your account. Just an idea.

    Thanks, I guess it is really a moot point anyhow. I'll probably just give him the cash the next time I see him.

    Thank you for the high praise.

    Just so you know, you don't have to have a PayPal account to pay through paypal with us. Since P&PG has a merchant account, you can opt to pay directly with any major credit card or debit card that PayPal recognizes. All you need to do is follow the prompts until you get to the PayPal page that prompts you to login to PayPal. On that page, there is an option that says "Don't have a PayPal account? User your credit or debit card to pay," and click "Continue" beneath that. That method doesn't require you have a PayPal account at all.

    Heya. I also added a poll to this thread. If you were there, but couldn't connect and want to give us a shout out, you can add your name to this poll. I'd love to have an approximation of just how many people were trying to get on but couldn't.

    All I know is there were almost a thousand competing processes trying to get a connection last night at the same time. It was incredible to see the server load at figures like 950!

    Damn, there went my last excuse. Looks like I'll have to really do it now.

    Wow what a clever and original name. Wish I had something like that...I'd probably go with some kind of frozen, custard-like treat...
