A Quick Note of Dam Bursting


Now we’ve done it.

The OBN has sprung some leaks, burst the seat of our pants, and water is pouring over the spillway. The OBN is officially in need of a bigger home, and pronto.

While I’m packing boxes and moving information and changing everything over to a new server for the next 24 hours, please be advised there will probably be 500 server errors. And slow time. And (give Rebecca a complete heart attack) black voids of darkness downtime.

Hopefully I am the only one who suffers any duress during this transition.

Until I can breath again, I wish everyone a great day!

(p.s. the site should continue to work as usual, so do what you always do, just keep in mind possible errors might say Hello to you)

    Where’s a Little Dutch Boy when you need him?

    Rebecca I have some bubble gum? LOL! Keep your head above water!

    Kirk…you be the Dutch Boy and Tyler…I’ll take all the gum I can get right now =)

    I have absolutely no skills that can help you in your time of distress… I don’t like gum so I can’t help you there. And I’m not Dutch. So, i only wish you luck and smooth sailing. Maybe have a glass of wine? That always seems to make stressful activities seem better for me :)

    Keep it up, your resource (OBN) is great. It is much loved. No stress.

      Thanks Ben. We’ll only be going through this for a few days and then…hopefully we are back to running on all 4 pistons again around these parts!

    I heard something about you letting Cardboard Kirk man the controls and then…I mean now….just look at it. A full-blown gusher. Which reminds me of troutrageous’ video he found about this kid that reviews fruit roll up type snacks and then when he ….wait…where am I? Is this my blog? holy crap.

    Good luck and I hope goes well with this!!!!

    OBN is a great place to share ideas and find great information – so a BIG thank you for Badger Bushcraft here in the UK.

    Best regards,

    Maybe I should let you do my next server change. My old one went all the way down the drain ;)
    Best of Luck!

    Could one of the errors be that I cant email/contact you guys about the contest?

    Hi Rebecca,
    I am with Bigerfish on this one. Sorry to hear about all of the headaches. I also have sent messages and am not sure if you have my address or not. Just wondering if it has been received or not. Sorry to bother you at such a hectic time, just curious.

    Thanks for your valuable time,
    Trout MaGee

    Hi Rebecca,

    Just wondered if my check was coming for that stuff. If the email got lost, just mail me $100 and we’ll call it square.

    I think I found one of the errors- I didn’t get picked for last weeks gear review opportunities. Better check the RNG.
