About That Downtime At Theprp.com…

In regards to the recent downtime, theprp.com was recently moved to a new server with a better processor, more ram and the like. Of course, true to theprp form, there was some speed bumps hit along the way. Hopefully the brief interruption is now over, but if something breaks, it will be looked into quickly. Apologies, for the inconvenience caused.

    Needs an exclusive tag, and I look forward to reading about it on Wolverine Kills.

    Holy shit I thought I had fallen into a Time Warp.

      I feel like that every single day, reading stuff about Static X playing a Wisconsin Death Trip tour, or some other tour featuring a bunch of oldies (Slayer/ST/Exodus) or “oldies” (90′s revivals!).

        I think in about 10 years classic rock stations (provided they still exist in their current form) will sound a lot like rock radio in the 90s. Our local one already sneaks in some Pearl Jam and Soundgarden every now and again. Its an interesting idea that at some point Led Zep will classify as oldies and Buddy Holly will be classical music or something.

        It’s begun already. I heard Learn to Fly by Foo Fighters on one of our local classic rock stations last week.

        KLOS, SoCal’s classic rock station, has been playing Nirvana and some others for several years now. I haven’t really listened to it in a few years, so I’m not sure what they’re up to now.

        Classic is 20 years so Led Zep is way past that. It’s grandpa music now. Unfortunately Nirvana is classic rock now.

    Now, days and days worth of news will rain like blood from the sky.

  • Porpoise Orifice

    eek, and still the lostprophets logo at the top?

    • MyDarkPassenger

      For what it’s worth, I really liked the very, very short-lived red and grey look (just before this one). Had a definite commie vibe going on (including a sickle and hammer, I think) that really fit the material.

      It’d be cool if there was a “Classic” button that made everything format like the old days.

        Commies aren’t cool. Fuck Communism and anyone who supports it.

      • Sniki

        I don’t even remember that one… Only the old blue version, and this one.

    Wook, I know you’ve got to pay the bills but the advertising slapped all over your site is creating an eyesore.

      A sad necessity. Believe it or not I’ve turned some down. Running a site is a hustle, you don’t make a lot and gotta grease what you can.

      All adblock plus does is wind up fucking me in the end, though it’s great for sites with pop-ups, etc.

      • WURST

        Feel free to keep the Arab chick ad going, she’s got a nice fart box on her.

      • mYstic headlock

        Everyone sounds like they’d be a lot happier if you just did this for free. You could always go with the Pirate Bay plan of ads like “Cheat on your wife, no one will know.” No one seems to complain about those (except my wife).

      • wookubus

        Haha I did it for free for a number of years, then I got old and responsibilities happened.

        Your looking at chicks working out and whatever else shows up targeted to you is what keeps me behind this desk daily.

      • mYstic headlock

        I’m not the one complaining that’s for sure. Besides, this is the only scenario where looking at more porn than anything else pays off. All I get are ten different articles on a game I’ve never heard of (DMZ) and “gorgeous girls who date ugly men” which could be the title of my wife’s autobiography. Where’s my Arab chick with a sweet ass?

      • Monomate

        *Calmly turns off adblock for the site and walks away in shame*

      • Porpoise Orifice

        Wurst clicks on “10 Signs He’s a King of Kings In Bed.”

      • Surly

        Well big guy, I’d prefer the site running with tips on how to “seriously date Asian girls” than having no prp at all. Keep up the grind for the fans.

      • STH5563

        It’s so random how the ads target what you search and the area you’re in. I went and paid my mortgage with PennyMac, then all of the sudden there’s PennyMac ads. I went and applied for a few jobs on Monster then there were Monster ads. Creepy! If the ads are keeping you and this site chill, then so be it. ThePRP is awesome.

        I understand the necessity to generate money, but while on the subject – hey man, why don’t you let us buy some damn prp merch, yo! I’ve love to walk around with my prp shirt – it’s even more obscure than some band shirts hahaha. I’m not opposed to getting some funds directly to you for this site. I sure as hell am not hearing about new heavy bands from my work colleagues and most friends – so the site is much appreciated.

    • Sniki

      N-N-N-N-N-N-N-N-NECROPOSTING~

      Also, agree. Even if there’s adblock.
