WARNING: TR site weirdness planned for Wed. June 28

By Jay Garmon Contributor ·
Just a heads up to all the hardcore TechRepublic fanatics out there. We're going to briefly shut down our global user authentication system for maintenance on Wednesday, June 28, 2006 from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm Pacific Time.

This shutdown may or may not affect any TR feature that requires a member to log in (posting, editing, visiting restricted forums, viewing customized feeds such as Posts From My Contacts, updating profiles, saving items, subscribing to alerts, or modifying newsletter subscriptions). It may also cause unanticipated weirdness, so expect the unexpected.

If stuff is still screwy on Thursday morning, send up a flare.

But worst of all

The grossly disturbing, yet inescapably captivating, Ethiopian "fiancee" thread has been pulled.

I was really starting to enjoy that one. What exactly caused TR to flush that turd? The last I saw it on Thursday morning (EDT), after days of swirling around it looked as though it might go down the drain. I guess it did.

What'd I do? It's not like I dis-virgined you or anything.

(Not that I'm into that type of thing. I'm pure AND hetero.)

Ok, I'm leaving this post right now. It's a little weird!!

You can remain virgin on the ridiculous at a great height below the top of the gutter.

Still having tons of problems with half loaded pages, not being able to post and 404 error Page not found. I hope this gets through, but I actually sent it through the HELP too.

8 PM July 4th and The Weirdness Plays On!!! What's happening here???

by sleepin'dawg In reply to WARNING: TR site weirdnes ...

No flares but a regular fireworks display!!!

It would be nice getting an update or two. Perhaps if you stated the problem on your end, you've got an anxious pool of IT talent that might be able to suggest a solution or two.
