Nokia World 2011 Today!

| October 26, 2011 | 16 Replies

I’m cautiously updating the website. It has been pretty terrible, touch and go.

Thanks for everyone who was offering help. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to answer your messages. My internet died at the IMAX.

I’m praying to God DreamHost will be ok enough for at least some of our regular readers. Deepest apologies that we were down for most of yesterday. I was rather distraught of the possibility of not being able to connect the Nokia World news with you guys. Somehow it’s back, Stefanos also optimised supercache (as the last count it stopped working).

Anyway will take a break for now, see if this post will get through to you guys. Will update with other posts shortly.
