Trouble at THT
Some of you may have noticed that The Hardball Times is "down." If you go there, you'll get a little message saying, "The Hardball Times is currently experiencing technical difficulties. We'll be back up and running shortly. Sorry for the inconvenience, and check back with us later."
A couple things...
1) I hate computers. They lull you into a comfort zone by working perfectly for a while, but just when you start to count on them, they let you down.
2) We're having a little trouble recovering our articles from Monday and Tuesday. If anyone saved them on their computer or has the cached page on their browser, could you please e-mail me asap? Thanks.
Other than the website I worked so hard on for months and months crashing totally unannounced yesterday afternoon, it was a perfectly fine Tuesday. The Twins didn't lose any games or any pitchers on waivers, which is great.
Normally, with no article at THT today I would have something nice and lengthy for you here, but, alas, I am so stressed out over the crashing of the site that I basically spent all day staring at my computer screen, exchanging worried IMs with people.
Say a little prayer for our infant website and I'll talk to you tomorrow.
Atlanta (Thomson) -105 over New York (Yates)
