    Welp, this.
    Due to forces beyond my control (read: our datacenter's building is getting electrical upgrades), the main Sonic Retro server will be down from approximately 7 am to 7 pm EST. BadnikNET will be up during the duration of the outage.

    THINGS YOU CAN DO WHILE THE SERVER IS DOWN

    Work on that dumb Sonic 4 Episode 2 joke you want to make: I know you, dear reader. You're going to go in the S4E2 thread and make a nice steamy dump by saying some unfunny joke instead of making any worthwhile conversation. This is OK only if you're genuinely funny, which most of you aren't. Hey, I'm not. At least I recognize it. Go into #retro. Work it out. Workshop it. Come up with a good one-liner.

    Finish the art on that hack you started two years ago: Come on. You've been putting that thing off forever and it's not like you need the SCHG to draw a tree.

    Listen to the extended cut of Eric B & Rakim's "Paid in Full": With Jet Set Radio's re-release announced, go back and find out why he's a sweet soul brother. Besides, Eric B. is on the Cut.

    Eat a taco: This has nothing to do with video games, but I strongly endorse eating a taco. If you live in Europe, where tacos are universally disgusting, try making your own at home!

    Funnily enough, I actually did do some work on my hack today because retro was down. Got access to the wiki info I needed easily via google's cache service though. Even when retro's down, it's still awesome. =P

    high quality video game rips
    Just a tiny aside: You guys are hosted out of Kansas City... my site was also down that day, my VPS provider's servers are out of Kansas City, and the reason cited was also electrical maintenance. I wonder if we're in the same datacenter?

    Welp, this.
    The building our datacenter is in does have some other, smaller hosts on lower floors, so it's quite possible.

    We're at the top! Cause we're tops! :3
