Why is it some sites can stay online, and others seem to eat it every time something interesting happens in the world of wrestling?

You get what you pay (or don't pay) for and the amount of research you put into your host, I guess.

I have the feeling 1wrestling's programming is pretty inefficient. If it's anything like their html coding (so bad, Google's WAP proxy chokes on it), their backend setup must be awful.

I could easily cut 1wrestling's bandwidth usage in half or more by trimming out comments, bad code, compressing webpages and maybe switching to CSS. They could use that money to buy more server power. I also think they'd get more bang for the buck if they moved away from IIS/Windows.

But, hey, you can buy a premium subscription and get access even during busy periods!

I *think* Flea found out why you don't host MP3s on your site unless you have tons of bandwidth to kill.

Oh man, *I* wanted to razz him about that first - only I wanted to do it in private via AIM where none of you chuckleheads would see it.

Me, I tend to blame the guy who *told* FLEA he had "unlimited bandwidth" when obviously he didn't. Cubs is probably on the right track, but darned if I never got a chance to visit his site after he put up whatever content crashed the system so I can't be 100% sure. All I know is it got me out of sending him a music review! For now, anyway ;-)

Yeah Yeah Yeah

What happened was a combination of my reiterating four times This is what I want to do. Can I do that? No problem? Even with streaming video and audio? HEY! That sounds like a winner. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE dont hassle me with the site being unavailable. Are you sure this wont be a problem? Right on! and my request being misinterpreted as BANDWIDTH LIMIT EXCEEDED, YOU DUMB SCHMUCK!

Damn straight. Its a "settings" issue, Im told, and will be fixedThe only good thing to come about it is that I managed to not have my balls busted about it for almost a week

411 is doing it again right now (4:15 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Monday) -- Its unbelievable that guys like 1wrestling wouldn't take steps to beef up their site, knowing that a lot of people, paying or not, will go their site to get PPV results and fallout.

I don't know if that was a shot at OO, or a compliment that it at least had it's shit together when other sites were down.

As for there not being real-time PPV notes up, Rick was out of town doing some family thing or something. But, like on the Wienerboard, there were good people providing updates on the OO message board. And Rick had a recap up and going by the time I got my boozed ass back from the bar at which I saw the PPV, so he gets my vote. If I were running a website, my PPV recap would have been, "Goddamn. Nachos. Stupid #$&@ pixies. Stop stealing my shoes and throwing trucks at me!"

Glad to know where Flea is. I was wondering where he went. Get that shit straight, Flea. I feel like readin'!
