So, that outage is over now, I guess? The working theory is that we ran into a known issue with wp-cron.php, a scheduler that WordPress uses to talk to servers so there was a lot of advanced UNIX stuff being used that just passes over my head like a pteradon. Thankfully it happened on a holiday so you, the teeming masses, weren’t left completely without inane ramblings and poorly photochopped comic book panels.
But that’s not why you’re here, is it? You want to know if you got yourself some fancy comic books, right?
Something that I realized I didn’t do with the post announcing the Potter’s Field contest is to let you all know that there were actually three copies of Mark Waid and Paul Azaceta’s book up for grabs. Silly me! Anyway, there were over 300 entries from around the world, but the random number generator at Random.org made sussing them out pretty simple. The winners are as follows: KT Wiegman of Los Angeles; Jeff Metzner from Exton, PA; Chicago’s own John Pontoon! I’ve forwarded your contact information to Chip Mosher at BOOM! and you can expect to see something in the mail in the very near future, gang!
We may have another contest as early as tomorrow, so come back soon, y’hear?
