    only to show that Murphy's Law is alive and well.

    anyway, the server, having been up 368 days, went down around 2am PST last night while i was in bed after an exhausting day.

    but anyway, it has been revived and hopefully you guys won't bring it down again... ;)

    Actually..

    ..i was able to see a bit of BC early this morning, but then it went out shortly after..I didn't see how many people were surfing in BC, but if i recall, the total was still under 1000 users. But it wasn't only BC that went out, the tournamentsoftware.com livescore also died, about the same time as i tried to check the scoreboard..I guess BC died and everyone tried to follow the livescore link, thus causing both to overload and eventually died..:p

    Looks like everything is back now, even the lag after a reply is fixed! Yay!:cool:

    Anyway, a Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms!..:):cool:

    I seriously missed some part of my daily routine... this isn't good for my health you know. I want free cookies to compensate the mental shock :D

    What I meant to say is: Thank God BC is up again. Thanks Kwun! *Kwun = God (!?)* :p

    TC/UC 2008: Malaysian fans will be in full force on Day 4

    .
    For the evening events of the TC/UC 2008 Day 3, our active members@BC and guests are lower. So, we have no problems for both BC and Livescore. :):):)

    Malaysian fans will be in full force on Day 4, tomorrow Wednesday 14-May-2008, when both their Mens and Womens teams are playing in the Quarter-Finals. We hope that BC and Livescore would be OK. ;););)

    Search and you shall find

    .
    OK... This is a quiz for you members@BC. :confused::confused::confused:

    QUIZ: What was the reason that caused our Badminton Central to have 1,445 users online in March 2007 ?

    Hint: Search and you shall find.

    To those, especially kwun, who know the answer, please do not release it before the TC/UC 2008 is over. :D:D:D
