You know what's a bummer? I'll tell you.[More:] When, after 1,118 comments and almost six years, you have to be the one to close the famous 'bummer thread' to new comments. Unfortunately it's now overtaxing the server (or something to do with hamsters - I'm not quite sure of the technical details) to the extent that it's impossible to submit a new comment without an error message appearing. That, my friends, is a bummer.

Not bummed. I hope you're not bummed out that I'm telling you this.

Ha. I think I was the first to see that error. I wrote an obituary post for 'the bummer'.

Six years is an eternity in internet years. Seeing the beginnings of that thread makes me a bit sad: slightly familiar user handles that I haven't seen in a long time.

At some point we won't see eachother online either. Without notice.
So I'd like to say right now in advance: goodbye.

I unwisely did a Google Image Search for "bummer". The least awful image in the first row was this:

...through which I discovered Jon Kelly Green's fun cartoony art blog, including the more-recent-but-semi-related...

For me, finding a new source of fun cartoony art is never a bummer.

Octo, we always knew you were a tread-killer. We were just to polite to come out with it.

A friend and bunny posted this today: Bacon cinnamon rolls.

10 slices bacon
1 can (17.5 oz) Pillsbury® Grands!® refrigerated cinnamon rolls with cream cheese icing (5 rolls)
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease or spray 8- or 9-inch round pan.
2. Separate dough into 5 rolls. Unroll rolls. Cook bacon until crisp. While bacon is still warm, place 2 slices bacon on top of 1 unrolled roll; roll back up. Repeat to use up rolls and bacon. Place cinnamon rolls in pan.
3. Bake 25 to 29 minutes or until golden brown.
4. Spread with icing; serve warm

Oh hai, new bummer thread.

It's a bummer when the new bummer thread gets no love for almost a year.
posted by octothorpe 13 May | 07:05
Don't know why the bummer thread popped into my mind recently but now I feel obliged to bump the Son of Bummer thread.

I don't know if email notifications still work for other people not me, but it seems sad that rich would not get a notification for a comment on all of bummer thread's children.
