    Honestly, I'm just a little glad the network went down. We've all had a nice long break, and we should be ready to finish strong, whenever this thing gets rolling again.

    Stop in and tell us what you've been doing with your time off.

    I have been busy with real life college and trying to win all the rivalry game trophies in my free time in NCAA 11. I had a wild overtime loss to Louisville with Cincinnati 78-77. I lost my second try for that one 25-21 when the final pass of the game (to a wide open receiver no less) from the 2 yard line was batted down at the LOS. I won the third one 35-0. 27 more to go...

    I have been busy beyond belief I was hired as the head football coach at my high school two fridays ago and life has been a whirlwind ever since. We are busy in spring practice and having the network down has been a HUGE plus for my marriage.

    Tiger woods and wife time. Shes' going to be pissed when the network gets back up if it ever does.

    Of note, do you guys think that if everyone's wives got together they could have been responsible for the hack??? I know my wife alone has no ideas about computers, but if you get enough women together....

    Just a thought.

    I think that's the original date for a TOTAL re-launch, which is nothing new. The phased restoration of services, beginning with the ability to play online, is still supposed to happen soon. However, people grabbed that line after Sony missed last night's deadline (for the fourth frickin' time) and are now in full attack mode, using that date to freak out the masses. Personally, I like it. Sony will have to respond, or else the story (which, in all honesty, is created rather than reported) will just keep growing. I hope it does just that.

    That's what I get for skipping posts. Iowa is right, or at least that's today's story.

    I've read that there is already a third attack planned for when the servers are back running functionally. These hackers suck ass.

    Thanks for all the updates, guys. I've been working, working, and working.

    Fortunately, though, some things at the job changed for the better recently, and my life is on the verge of getting back to normal.

    With at least a couple more weeks before we get back online, I'm going to be in FULL FORCE by the time of the new release.

    I feel (a tad bit) sorry for my first few user competitors. ;-)
