TheEEstory.com Under Attack Again!!!

Image: Starships.com? WT?
Nah, I'm kidding.  It's probably just technical difficulties. You know, difficulties that are technical meaning techniques and technologies are technically tenacious at this time.  Don't worry though, you don't really need TheEEStory.com right now. You have this blog post to read which I can tell you are definitely enjoying.  I know I am enjoying writing it.  Tell me, what if I told you right now that I am shutting down TheEEStory for good?  All gone.  Wouldn't that be sorta like becoming a vegetarian all of a sudden (or vice versa you vegans out there)?  How would you handle that situation anyway?  I know it is crazy to think about.  Blows your mind doesn't it?  Yeah, me too. Whew.  Well, listen, I can't really keep writing this blog post all day. I've got other blog posts to write.  News topics area always coming at me. That's what it's like being the center of the EEStor information universe.  Oh, are you surprised by that statement?  You think Dick Weir is the center of that universe?  No, it is me and only me.  Ok, sure, he does a little bit every now and then but for the most part all of his information is "proprietary" whereas see, I'm open source.  Proprietary. Open Source. See the difference?  I find that followers have adopted me as a solution for EEStor information because I don't require you to invest $5Mil in EEStor to obtain it.   True, I should require it but I don't...for the time being.  Do any of you have $5Mil out there?  If so, send it to me.  Don't worry about what I'll do with it. It will be happy here. I give you my solemn assurance.

Any way, you probably miss your friends at TheEEStory so go ahead and make use of the comment section to talk to your buddies OLD SCHOOL style.  Remember the early days on this blog when Y_Po would post like 85 comments in a day and battle Steve and others?   Wow. What a long time we've been sitting around waiting for Godot.

UPDATE:  Site is back up!

oh hey, yeah, the website is really having difficulties. i wasnt making that up. but some technical dudes are busy working at it...scratching their heads partially as you can surmise. did you surmise that? dont answer that.

i know. it's a pain. you probably forgot your blogger login and have to create a new account to post comments. i'd turn on auto comments but the spambots would try and take over. those spam bots aren't cool.

by the way, this is what TheEEStory.com will be like in a couple years. Just me, posting hyped up stories about how EEStor will soon produce a prototype. No one listening to me. But there's me just happy as can be...updating no one on the few and far between updates. Talking to myself. Acting strangely.

This is how I hope it happens actually. TheEEStory is down. Some major news breaks and all we have to communicate with each other is this comment section. Still happy as can be though sort of. Jonesing for the chat room. etc.

AH!!!!!!!!! Again! Must...have...access...to...chat...or...topics!

Seriously, I hate it when the share price makes a big move, and everyone storms the place looking for news. If there was actual news, we'd be looking at a lot more volume.

But honestly, I like it when other people come and talk about the things we like to talk about. It gets lonely sometimes when there is not a lot going on.

Now who's the rambling blogger?
