What is the sound of one site crashing?

A question:

How do I register my fury over Twitter being offline if Twitter is offline?

(Cue “Fin.” slide, perhaps with sounds of French clowns crying.)

This is a blog entry posted on day 11433 in the Journal.

    I was gonna say that you fall back to Pownce, but that’s just crazy talk.

  2. David Sleight says:

    Someone really needs to add a bowl of talking petunias to the Twitter Fail Whale illustration. “Oh no, not again…”

  3. The Robot says:

    Note to self: introduce ability to favorite comments. Because this and this are where the win is.

  4. Martijn says:

    David — So we finally figured out why it was saying that when it saw the whale falling into a crash.

  5. Martijn says:

    Textile doesn’t like me, sorry for that.

    As for the question asked, it could be me but this is a blog and normally people who get pissed at something write annoying blog posts. Or does this one already accounted as one? I believe it’s not annoying enough.

    Martijn :

    Textile doesn’t like me, sorry for that.

    It’s not you; it’s ExpressionEngine’s broken Textile implementation. Which I might have to write an annoyed blog post about at some point, per your suggestion .
