Rizz April 5 2006 10:58 PM EDT

Chat Blender 3.1.7 starting...

sssimmo April 5 2006 11:03 PM EDT

Me too.

(Ping timeout to server. Reconnecting. You may have have missed a few seconds of messaging.)

SNK3R April 5 2006 11:04 PM EDT

Ditto, please be patient for Jon to get around to fixing it or for it to be restarted.

Taylor April 5 2006 11:05 PM EDT

i got the same thing. i thought it was just me. now i know.

SNK3R April 5 2006 11:17 PM EDT

Deleted Shadowking's extra "chat won't load" thread; same problem as this.

QBsutekh137 April 5 2006 11:21 PM EDT

Thread deleter.

Gallatin [Thanoscopter And You] April 5 2006 11:23 PM EDT

Urgh. I've got the same thing. Chat + problem = dead.

sP(Sandy) April 5 2006 11:24 PM EDT

hey thanx for relieving me! i owe you guys!

Maelstrom April 5 2006 11:33 PM EDT

Maybe it's because everyone is refreshing the screen, trying to get Verifex's "cheat" working ;)

sP(Sandy) April 5 2006 11:35 PM EDT

ahem? im not..wats with ping? whos ping?

Zacharia Andrew Pa!n April 5 2006 11:40 PM EDT

yeah dead here as well..

sP(Sandy) April 5 2006 11:42 PM EDT

Somebody fix it!! So boring!!!

Maelstrom April 5 2006 11:46 PM EDT

A ping is a little demon that's sent scurrying through the Internet. If it gets to you, it steals your soul. Then it jumps back into the Internet, scurries back home, and tells it's evil master how long it took to steal the soul.

Apparently, right now, the nasty little ping is getting lost.

sP(Sandy) April 5 2006 11:49 PM EDT

im scared!!!!! plz somebody protect me!!!!

RomanceJunkieItami April 5 2006 11:50 PM EDT

American music is so interesting :P There's a song currently playing and it fits the situation on here perfectly; Lonely, I'm so lonely. I have no body, on my own. Forgive me about that, just needed to interact with the community a little D:

sP(Sandy) April 5 2006 11:53 PM EDT

yeh!!! by the way.....if you don't use one of your characters much, does it aumatically become retired?

Maelstrom April 5 2006 11:56 PM EDT


{AK}Buz April 5 2006 11:56 PM EDT

hehe romance, that song is reallllly wierd, dont worry, not all american music is that odd. my sister played me that one for the first time the other day, i was like what the heck...i guess that artists name is akon or something like that

Rizz April 5 2006 11:58 PM EDT

Akon - Lonely
it's made the top charts it's pretty good. his other songs are better though.

RomanceJunkieItami April 6 2006 12:02 AM EDT

oh alright! I was surprise to hear an artist with such a child like voice on the radio D:

sP(Sandy) April 6 2006 12:04 AM EDT

wat song?

Maelstrom April 6 2006 12:13 AM EDT

Ugh. That song. I just realized what you were talking about. \me shudders...

It's not a child's voice, it's a vocal effect.

sP(Sandy) April 6 2006 12:14 AM EDT

oh no..not that

sP(Sandy) April 6 2006 12:16 AM EDT

sooo...has anybody decided to fix chat or is this permanent?

SNK3R April 6 2006 12:19 AM EDT

Please be patient for Jon to get around to fixing it or for it to be restarted.

Rizz April 6 2006 12:19 AM EDT

shadow chill out and be patient..

sP(Sandy) April 6 2006 12:24 AM EDT

SNK3R April 6 2006 12:25 AM EDT

He's the creator of CB.

sP(Sandy) April 6 2006 12:26 AM EDT

i must thank him lots for mking such a great game

sP(Sandy) April 6 2006 12:35 AM EDT

has this happened before?

A Bathing Ape April 6 2006 12:41 AM EDT

belated april fools?

Chat Blender 3.1.7 starting...

(CB1)ranament April 6 2006 12:51 AM EDT

When the chat window was loading it said it was loading from the google thing Timberwolf was talking about. I never downloaded it so I'm guessing its on the server or something

Timberwolf April 6 2006 1:09 AM EDT

The problems I was having with the google-analytics should have no wide spread effect on chat like this.
Verifex nailed it earlier when he said my problem was, I finally reached the threshold of Java I could run at one time.
I have the google-analytics script disabled and cannot get to chat either, so I highly doubt that has anything to do with it.

DD34isback(justkidding) [Severswoed Accounting] April 6 2006 1:15 AM EDT

ahhhhhhhh the apocalypse is here....
/me sees flashbacks of cb1s constant chat dieing

sssimmo April 6 2006 1:17 AM EDT

I don't know anything about why chat is screwed up, but what I would like to know is why AKBuz wishes he was his sister?!?

bartjan April 6 2006 1:22 AM EDT

There's this "Restart the chat server" that full admins can push in cases of emergency ('now' sounds like a good time). Problem is that the admin page containing that button won't load right now (browser is still loading it for 10+ minutes, with nothing to show this far). Maybe it won't load because it first checks how many users are in chat right now, and that page is also waiting (very patiently) for the chat server to provide that answer?

Anyway, it sounds like we have to wait for Jon on this one.

SNK3R April 6 2006 1:23 AM EDT

Thanks for the update, Bart. ;)

Gallatin [Thanoscopter And You] April 6 2006 1:29 AM EDT

Oh, great. Full admin + Restart chat server button + the page containing the button hardly even loading = possible bad stuff to happen on the server. Just great.

Mem April 6 2006 1:38 AM EDT

You're over analyzing, Seran. Wait until Jon gets on the problem before you start hyperventilating.

DD34isback(justkidding) [Severswoed Accounting] April 6 2006 1:53 AM EDT

Jon sleeps to much... :(

Gallatin [Thanoscopter And You] April 6 2006 2:04 AM EDT

*mutters something in Japanese and hangs his head in shame*

This sort of bites.

Flamey April 6 2006 2:11 AM EDT

yea, your taking things to seriously seran, just relax.

YOU April 6 2006 2:16 AM EDT

No Chat for Joo Muahaha

Gallatin [Thanoscopter And You] April 6 2006 2:54 AM EDT

*carps YOU* You've gone psycho.

YOU April 6 2006 3:47 AM EDT

i know i know i am sorry. I saw too many: Ping timeout to server.

DD34isback(justkidding) [Severswoed Accounting] April 6 2006 3:49 AM EDT

so..... why does Jon gotta be asleep at 348 AM :)

Flamey April 6 2006 4:15 AM EDT

yea i though he was nocturnal, strange isnt it?

DD34isback(justkidding) [Severswoed Accounting] April 6 2006 4:18 AM EDT

must be the whole family thing....

bartjan April 6 2006 4:36 AM EDT

Jon lives in MDT, not EDT...

Gallatin [Thanoscopter And You] April 6 2006 4:47 AM EDT

*sighs, hangs his head in shame and carps himself twice*

I've gone and made myself stupid.

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] April 6 2006 5:38 AM EDT

and i thought it was my dumb screwed up pc but its not, so i don't have to hit again, it already have enough bumps :/

[me]Davis April 6 2006 6:48 AM EDT

wow it looks like this thread is turning into chat lolololol

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] April 6 2006 6:57 AM EDT

lets start talking then TSCM :p something has to be able to talk to my , lets call it my fellow cb2er's

YNM April 6 2006 7:27 AM EDT

So i'm guessing, Jon absent + Chat not loading + cb'ers not get blending + my itchy + that jerk ping = a great boost in other online games?

IndependenZ April 6 2006 7:28 AM EDT

Probably, YNM :p

But fighting an everything is working as it should, right? I haven't seen any difference except for the chat thing. :)

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] April 6 2006 7:30 AM EDT

Chat not loading = more 'Blending, not less, and a ten-fold spike in CMs.

YNM April 6 2006 7:32 AM EDT

Ah, but who's here for the fighting? Hell i don't even think i'm here for the chatting...wait a second...

QBJohnnywas April 6 2006 7:36 AM EDT

I'm here for the fighting. And the women.

Oh wait a minute. That's the pub.

Ok. I'm here for blacksmith.

YNM April 6 2006 7:38 AM EDT

<h2>WOMEN!</h2> Oh, speaaking of women....girlfriend rising...aaah!

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] April 6 2006 7:42 AM EDT

chat is up, chat is up

o wait its not 1 april, never mind

YNM April 6 2006 7:43 AM EDT

2 ping timeouts...then nothing...

A Lesser AR of 15 [Red Permanent Assurance] April 6 2006 8:51 AM EDT

Would like to take this time and ask Seran and Shadowking to go to carnage when the chat server comes back. Sandy I know you have been there, but when I'm still telling you to stay there seems we've lost our understanding. Maybe this post will finally push the overstated point. Both can come back if/when there is a question to be answered and leaving promptly afterwards. Names to put on the imaginary np watch list would be scy(false info) Agoth, Someb, and Skc. Don't need to give the whole names if you're in the know. All have been given the requested move at different times, for the right reasons given what was happening at the time. All of you which are bored to tears and giving their parents something to ph34r. Believe I interrupted a midnight pg session between agoth and someb the other night since only bart was alive and afk if this helps convey a veiw. Not to be taken as seriously as stated.

sP(Sandy) April 6 2006 10:07 AM EDT

so they were talking about.............oh about wierdness. yup yup ill go to carnage as soon as chat comes back

AdminJonathan April 6 2006 10:45 AM EDT

chat is back. sorry!

WeaponX April 6 2006 10:45 AM EDT

chat is fixed.. yay!

Elros April 6 2006 10:45 AM EDT

Not broken anymore

AdminShade April 6 2006 11:50 AM EDT

Seems I haven't missed a thing, :)

BootyGod April 6 2006 3:08 PM EDT

Just as a passing comment... Darth Maul rocks on Battle front 2.... Just wanted to vent the frustrationt hat maul> yoda... not cool...

YNM April 6 2006 6:41 PM EDT

Chat being back + Me = Happy players
