Fingers crossed: We’re back!

The Skate and Annoy rebate

You may remember me, I’m the editor of Skate and Annoy. Since we’ve last talked, S&A has been through a couple of web hosting plans, and we’re finally online again. It’s been like a vacation, really. A vacation filled with angst, stress and despair. I got to Wally World and it was closed.

Thanks for sticking with us. We’re on a hosting plan for wankers right now. Not actual wankers, you know, because that kind of bandwidth is expensive. We’re on a regular shared hosting account until the VPS gets sorted out. I got tired of waiting. OK, I got scared everyone would forget about Skate and Annoy. In a couple of weeks we’re moving to a beefy VPS. Don’t worry, the transition will be nearly seamless this time, and when we do switch over we will be rolling out a new look and some new features.

I don’t have any new content for you today, I’ve been busy getting things working again, and there will likely be some glitches here and there. If you find some, please drop me an email to let me know what the problem is. In the meantime, while GVK was unable to help with the technical aspects of the great Skate and Annoy Rebate, he did manage to document it with uncanny insight. Catch it after the jump.

    dude, you’re going to have to explain what a VPS is to the readers out there. Too many acronyms these days.
    Virtual Private Server–which ties into S&A how?

    See how a little patience and an email to Randy threatening to set my own family on fire while they sleep helps pass the time?
    And Randy; see? I told you it would work out, no harm no foul.
    So next time don’t be such a panicky little girl who calls the cops for every suggestion they receive wrapped in a bloody napkin. Jees-us, melodramatic!

  12. Glad to see the site back up. 🙂

  13. Welcome back Randy. When I first heard that music on the video, I was expecting to see you make breakfast in a very complex and unnecessary manner. Oh well…
