infinitum has asked me to let you all know that while he performs some upgrades tonight, this server may not be available. He says it'd probably only affect those with insomnia and Australians. But I figured it wouldn't hurt to pass the word along.

As a newly-adopted Australian (hey, my work visa got approved, how about that?), I promise in the interest of fairness to ALSO randomly drop the board offline at 4am QLD time (around 11am CRZ's time) to make sure everyone is inconvenienced equally.

Okay, not really. I don't like it here THAT much. You all talk funny.

Of course you weren't working here before then

If you're living in Queensland, well yeah, they DO talk funny. The rest of us are perfectly normal. All you need to do now is pick a footy team, get a dogs eye with dead horse and a cold schooie of amber and you're away. Welcome to the country

I was here on a working holiday visa, so I was working legally. But, a company here wants to keep me for (much) longer than their alloted three months, so they sponsored me. Got the whole thing done in under a month. I'm moderately impressed with the efficiency of the whole thing.

// edit: Also, the upgrade went flawlessly. My apologies to the 3 users who may have actually noticed. You can all now expect a host of new features from GuruZim, as he claimed that MySQL 4.x would allow him to do new and interesting things.
