I know the FtB server has been slow and crash-happy the last 24 hours. Atheism, it turns out, is becoming too damn popular and the groans you hear when loading a page is our poor server straining under the weight of the rising tide of godlessness! This leaves us with three options.
1. Quick, everybody pray as hard as you can.
2. We pay the company hosting us to have somebody who understands how computers work to upgrade us to the best servers they have on offer.
3. Quick, everybody pray while we pay the company hosting us to upgrade, and then everybody credit the thing that clearly doesn’t work by itself for the result of the choice that clearly works by itself. Then, when somebody points out that prayer is masturbatory when it comes to fixing things, say, “Oh, of course we don’t only pray, we pray and we upgrade the server” as if prayer is now somehow noble and/or augmenting the effectiveness of our efforts instead of an empty gesture clutching the coattails of what I like to call ‘doing shit’.
Since we want the problem solved and because wasting time sucks, FtB has elected to go with option #2. This means there may be some downtime either today or sometime this weekend. I will keep you posted.
