Site Outage

You may have noticed that there was some downtime on this site during yesterday and today. Luckily I was up at 3am this morning working night-shift so I was able to contact the folks who host my server earlier rather than later.

Apparently there was some kind of hardware failure on the server but they weren’t more specific than that.

Apologies for the interruption of service…

Sorry folks if you’ve arrived at this article from a Google search – this link has not been live for a while now – I believe that the Playboy lawyers are quick to act against any copyright infringement and this page was certainly one BIG infringement…

Sell Your Idea To Hollywood

“This is a website for people from all walks of life — waitresses, cab drivers, mothers, policemen, you name it — who have a great idea for a movie.”

“Studios are more eager than ever to hear pitches for reality TV shows. Think controversial. Think outrageous. What will cause people to talk about a show at work the next day? Those are the ideas Bob is looking for.”


Oh no…hold on – I think this one’s already been done
