Yeah, so just after posting about server problems, wouldn’t you know it… Dreamhost takes the site offline because it’s TOO AWESOME. Sorry you can’t handle our awesomeness Dreamhost. We’ll try to go easier on you next time.

But…. just in case… I’ve got them moving Halolz over to a private server! Oh sure, I had to slip them a few bucks to grease the wheels of progress along (so what else is new), but soon the site will actually be able to survive a Digg link or a comment flame war!


Oh and they had me add some sort of caching plug-in to the site to reduce the CPU load. If you see anything weird happen please let me know!

    Just gotta ask… What is a Didd link? And what the hell is a caching plug? As for awesomeness, My friend Wilson said the reason this site went down is because the server saw HIM comming… My friend may be cool, but he’s starting to look like a lollypop his head is so big.

    Looks like their cruisers can’t repel awesomeness of Halolz’ magnitude. Oh and nothing weird has happened yet for me, at least.

    Hmm… maybe you should put this site on hold for a while and get back to that comic that was supposedly back… what was it called again?

    So that was whats up earlier….

    I think you’re talking about Staccato which so far only has 1 new comic. <_<

    wtf is with that D:
    i read all his old comics and liked them xD
    and lots of server problems ._.

    You mean <_<? When I left the computer to get something some idiot friend of mine that was visiting did that and sent it.

    That wasn’t a real question. Am I supposed to miss the big “OMG Staccato is back! Be sure to check it out!” on the top right side of the page? I was trying to imply that maybe the creator of the comic forgot all about it that he doesn’t even remember what it’s called, it’s supposed to be ironic or something, it’s funny.
    I find it funny that you’re not sure what comic I was talking about with the “I think…” response.

    -Dons uniform and puts on Commander Rank-
    -Crosses arms behind back as he stares out of the bridge of the battleship dubbed the S.S. Falcon Lawlz-
    -The viewing pans out showing the horizon of a sunset..with a squadron of Roflcopters flying off into the distance.-
    “Let the flame wars begin..”

    OMG the strangest things keep hapening!

    The site loads quickly! XD

    OO, just found a real problem. my name isnt green. that means that although it says under the comments im logged in, halolz doesnt register it (the other meaning of register).

  13. SpiralCocktail on September 14th, 2008 9:26 am

    Doesn’t your name only turn green when you have an url in the website box? I didn’t know you could log in at this site.

  14. ArmyGuy0628 on September 14th, 2008 11:53 am

    i found a major problem. there is still a picture of un-tooned kirby on this site

  15. Animedevildog on September 14th, 2008 12:01 pm

    Hey Armyguy, whatz wrong with untooned Kirby?

  16. ArmyGuy0628 on September 14th, 2008 12:10 pm

    It eats small children, and harvests their souls. Thats whats wrong

  17. Animedevildog on September 14th, 2008 1:55 pm

    THATS WHATS SO COOL ABOUT IT!!! Consider it a form of population control. Maybe if we sent a couple thousand over to China or India, there wouldn’t be so many starvin kids around…

    shawn, i dont know if you are reading this, but back at otakon you promised me once that con was over you’d continue Staccato. its been quite a while now, and i dont want to nag, but could you move to at least a weekly update schedule? m/w/f would be nice, but i just want anything at this point.
