Are you asking if homestarrunner.com goes down often? I don't think it does. There hasn't been a serious downtime since The System Is Down came out, I think. And that was while they were still hosting it on Yahoo.

You fail at grammar. And punctuation, really...you need to distinguish your sentences better. But to answer your question--or at least, what I presume is your question--I don't believe I've ever seen HSR go down at any time. It's a miracle of superserver proportions.

I say that we should worry more about the Wiki and Forum's servers instead of Homestar's. :P

The only time I remember HomestarRunner.com going down was during the Super Bowl in 2005, when the Peasant's Quest real-life trailer went up. It took around a day or so for the website to load back at its original speed.

I've seen Homestar Runner go down a couple times, usually just when big stuff comes out (like the PQ movie trailer). But if they ever actually had problems with it going down, they'd just upgrade their servers and stuff.

I'm sure they back it up, in the event this happens.

I'm with Disk. OUR server needs a bit of a boost right now. Homestar Runner's server seems to be in perfect working order.

Donate and make it better. It's kinda the reason why we have those pledge drives.

Did that post really have any meaning whatsoever?

Anysways, the H*R server seems perfectly fine. I've rarely had any problems accessing it. HRWiki, on the other hand...

Thus sayeth the pot to the kettle.
Posts making fun of the grammar of other users are bad enough, but given some of your posts, I don't think you're in a position to point out anyone's mistakes.

Oh, and the wiki's servers are always crapping up on me.
