We're having a power cut at Apterous Towers and the battery backup has now expired. Back in the next few hours with any luck.

Not technically down but the electroshock response may be needed here: Apterous Rex and Prime are currently wreaking havoc on the server like anagramming Godzillas (Godzillae?). Intervention appears to be necessary.

Dunno about down, but every time I try and log in it says "disconnected :(", yet the website body is fine. Seems to be affecting others too as noone has been in the room for over 2 hours.

People were commenting -just before this evening's massive crash- on how many players were online at the same time. Maybe around 30 in the room. Would that have contributed to the crash? Excess traffic?

And if that is something that's unstable about Apterous (that it cannot handle medium to large numbers of users), is that [part of] the reason why Charlie doesn't advertise, why the site is pretty hard to find via Google search, and why it is never mentioned on the TV show?

I remember when Jen Steadman was on Countdown and she declared LLANEROS during her run. Nick Hewer then said, "I don't know where she got that one from." Nick didn't want to answer his own question, and you all know why!

Agreed Jason.

As an aside, when did Apterous last get a mention on CD? Surely can't have been Charlie v Junaid but can't think of a more recent example.

Anyhow, back on topic, we're still not back after Apo time.

Editing myself : It's many a year back but I don't think it was mentioned during Charlie v Junaid in the final, it must have been earlier in Charlie's odyssey or the COC Q-F, as he was introduced as 'running a website', which surely must have alluded to the fact that it was similar to the show otherwise people like myself wouldn't have searched for it.

IIRC it steered me to c4c from which I then found links to Apterous, therefore Apterous probably wasn't mentioned on the show in 2009. I joined in March 2009 so I suspect the reference was most likely sometime during the 2009 COC.

Question then, has Apterous ever been mentioned by name on the show? And if so, when exactly.

I believe it was this forum that was mentioned in Charlie's first show. But I agree with you there, Phil. That I am also struggling to remember a time when it was mentioned. IMO I don't think they're allowed to mention the name on screen. The word "practising" has been used a few times whilst octochamps/finalists have been on.

I'm still surprised to see that Apterous is still currently down as we speak. Especially after apo! Question is now - how long are we looking at it still being down. I know there was a good 2 days over the Easter weekend in 2018 in which it was down. The unfortunate bit for that is that COREA 2018 didn't have any access to the whole site throughout the day. Therefore, Lexplorer couldn't be accessed. Luckily, for CoBrum 2018 whilst the site was down, they still had access to the main page so could access Lexplorer!

Yeah it was the forum Ronan. I think it was mentioned during Dylan and Zarte's game but I could be wrong
