    At 11PM EST, Barrack Obama was declared the President Elect.

    Also at 11PM EST, Boards.ie shut down to perform its daily backup, for 30 minutes.

    Good timing :rolleyes:

    Doesn't last 30 minutes, any more than you do! :p

    And even if the admins wanted to defer the back-up specially for the declaration, how tf were they supposed to know when exactly it would happen?! Remember all the commotion last time? (extreme case I know)

    Gerroverit!! :p

    And congrats on electing a President who might actually garner back for the USA some of its lost respect! :)

    Long enough! It was like, the biggest single moment to happen to the country since 9/11, and boards was timed out :pac:

    What's the point in something happening if you can't post about it on boards?!

    If the US presidential race screwed up by not taking boards downtime into account, that's not our problem.
