    whenever we post, it'll say that there was an error and to try again, but the post went through anyway causing MULTIPLE post of the same thing...
    I hope this gets fixed REAL QUICK otherwise we are going to have a lot of double posts :P

    Edit: in fact even when I made this thread it happened lol
    look:

    there was (and still is) an electricity shortage in a datacenter at our hosting company.
    filetrip.net is still down because of it; and I can't risk running maintenance operations right now because electricity is going up and down.
    basically if I do something right now and the electricity gets cut off during the process, we could lose more data.
    everyone, just wait a couple minutes (or hours if things are bad at the datacenter) and it will all go back to normal

    Oh.. Got shocked before reading this thread.
    Glad to get used to refresh after own posting.
    (Even it does show me error message,
    Copy the text and refresh before retry. yeah)
    Electricity shortage?
    Those just cut down the supply if get limited quota of electricity.
    glad to see this site still on.

    Well there are more thing can be regarded as amusing:

    I have restored the profile post comments from yesterday's backup.
    the latest comments have been lost, but I think that won't be a big deal :)

    You should see what they're doing; because the supply is low we've got technicians rushing around filling Leyden jars with electricity and pouring them straight into the servers.
