Oy! So you may have noticed that Craftster was down for several hours today. Cry There was a major corruption in the database and I worked on it with the help of my web hosting company and I think it's fixed now. But anyone notices anything strange like posts that hae gone missing, let me know.

Maybe we all need to sacrifice handcrafted items to appease them for the future? Wink I hear they like macaroni necklaces and anything made from popsicle sticks.

I'm glad everything is getting fixed up...

I was going through some serious withdrawal.  I'm talking too shaky to knit.  It was not pretty.

I'm also glad everything got fixed. I started a thread on Etsy asking if anyone else was having trouble with it and within 30min-1hr. I had about 19 posts of worried Etsiers/Craftsters.

you know how they say that if you put a bunch of monkees in a room full of typewriters (or for the heck of it lets say stylish desktops running m-word) that they would eventually produce the entire works of william shakespeare...well maybe one day the server will crash and all of the "lurk" "tute" "omg yur da bom" posts will just go away. sigh.

You know you're addicted when Crafster goes down and you start to panic that you're going to miss something - even though you know that no one else can get on either  Shocked

Only been a member almost 2 months and I was having withdrawal symptoms!

Should we post pics of our offerings here? Or under the catch-all category?  I think I'll crochet a quick doily out of plastic lacing.

Thank you, Leah, for fixing Craftster! I didn't know what to do with myself. Honestly, I sat in front of my laptop staring at a blank screen. I thought Craftster was ... gone! Heh, and I, too, thought I was missing out on something. Sigh. What on Earth would I do if Craftster really did disappear!? *making as many items as she can to sacrifice to the Computer Gods*


ETA: Right after I posted this the site went down! Eek! I meant to say Gods and Goddesses Smiley

This type of thing always makes me nervous.

Even when it is down for maintenence for a few minutes, I tend to check my e-mail, check back at craftster, pick up something that I'm knitting, do a few rows,  check back at craftster, Nevously knit a few more rows,  check back at craftster, go look out the window,  check back at craftster... (you get the idea) and end up watching an episode or two of dog wisperer or an infomercial until it comes back up.

I think the gods need some paper mache dinosaur figurines and something made out of a two liter bottle, egg carton, and an empty toilet paper roll.

I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one stressed out while craftster was down (BIG DEEP BREATH).  I am glad to see it's up back and working and that.  Sorry the God's got angry.  I'll throw in some pea and toothpick sculptures as well as some fingerpaints  Cheesy Wink

I sacrificed my cherished macaroni & glitter necklace from when I was in kindergarten, well, actually I didn't it's too damn precious -  I actually held it to the sky and it now rests in front of my computer - thanks for your hard work!

Oh my gosh, Spring break is not a good time for day-long major meltdowns! (refering to the March 14th episode) It scared the crap out of me. Obviously, the gods were not apeased. More macaroni, people!
