EA Origin Server Outage Reported


Yes… there is a problem with EA’s origin server.

There is no way to know when it will be back up…but if you are getting Error messages…or “you hav been logged out,” you are not alone. As in millions of players.

So…chillax.  Do something else and don’t panic.

It is likely another DDOS attack…which seems to be part of the new “fun” hackers from Russia have these days.  But, hey…just two more weeks and this madness will be over? Maybe…

THIS IS AN ORIGIN SERVER ISSUE…so it will also mess with any other EA games you play. But, again…there is no reason to worry about losing your game/Springfield as the data is on a different server, and after you able to log back in again, you’ll be fine (providing you remember your username and password).


It’s entirely up to you…but, I guarantee that until they reset and clear the servers, you will just drive yourself nuts.  NOTE- Changing your password may help you get on…for a bit. But, in the long run, it is far better to just wait it out. Your sanity is worth something…right?

Episode Recap: “Treehouse of Horror XXVII” (S28:E4)

Wookiee taking a break from schoolwork again to keep up with episode recaps. I know I haven’t been around a ton but at a minimum, my goal is to keep these current. One of the features we like to have on this site is recaps of new Simpsons episodes for all our friends who can’t watch them immediately or like our silly reviews of them. I love when there are new episodes of the Best. Show. Ever. on TV and it’s my privilege to not only watch new episodes, which I would do with or without this awesome site, but then break them down for all of you. It’s also nice to have a break from essays, reading, and brain-sucking tedium from time to time. In order to give yiu something Halloweeny this weekend (haha, I said weeny), I decided to delay this recap by a week. Mideterms might have also had something to do with it lol.  I stuck to the stream of consciousness format for this. Basically I watch the episode once for my enjoyment and then a couple more times slowly to catch as much as I can while jotting down notes. Without further ado… here’s my thoughts on Season 28, Episode 4 “Treehouse of Horror XXVII.”
