Diary of a Wookiee: 3 Years (plus one) minus sanity = 1 ramble

From Alissa…sorry guys word press had technical difficulties this morning.  Some of you might have been alerted of this post twice..or had broken links to get here.   Sorry about that…fortunately the issue is resolved now.   I just can’t resend you correct links to your email.  Sorry guys and thanks for your patience. 😀

Hey howdy hello Friendereenos!

In the dimension of time and space on a fertile rock hurtling millions of miles through space out of control around a giant nuclear ball of gas, I sit here in my comfy blue recliner with a laptop on a pad which keeps me from singeing my furry tender parts with the ability to reach thousands of people across said rock on an intangible information highway with my run-on sentences. It’s both a humbling and exhaustive enterprise to the extreme. It’s also a labor of love hence why I keep on keeping on with this “job” which went from something fun to try to a three-year enterprise that’s paid in dividends that would make most people quit after a month of writing. Heck, just a taste of this gig has made a lot of people I can think of run for the hills. It’s exhausting, it’s a grind, and for reasons sometimes beyond even me, I love it.

Diary of a Wookiee: DIE SIMPSONS

Hello friends.  You know that title makes me laugh because our German friends will just see it and think I decided to be multicultural.  Sideshow Bob just laughs and says the title would be completely defensible in Court a la DIE BART DIE.

For everyone else, I certainly don’t want the Simpsons to die but I don’t always get what I want.  This September, on the Season Premiere of the 26th Season, a character will die.  Touted as the “Yellow Wedding”, showrunner Al Jean has stated that “It turned out bigger than we thought it was going to be,” he said. “It’s not going to be this bloodbath where they all get murdered.”  Well Al, only time will tell.

Diary of a Wookiee: A Guinea Pig Ramble

Guinea pig, guinea pig, let me in…
Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin….

Well I’m huffing and puffing but no matter what I do, those dang pigs won’t come out of their house.  Wookieetown was once bustling with these cute little fuzzballs but alas, I ate them all.  Lisa had me excited with her 8 hr task at the Rescue Center but I must admit I was disappointed that this task was only a one-time deal.  No matter how I tap on the building, I only hear those poor cute piggys squeal and nothing more.  I really liked this building animation and hope to see it return.  (hint hint EA)

Fawn Over Rescued Guinea Pigs

Oh Those Origin Servers…Open Thread

“They’re up
They’re down, 
They’re down and up and down
down, down, down
up, up, up,
The Servers are down again!”

UPDATE: 5:50PM EST– It looks like the servers are back up and access to the games has returned. GET TO TAPPIN’!! 😉

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Are you seeing this message when you try to login to TSTO:
2014-01-29 21.25.47
Or this one?

Yea?  Me too.  But...DO NOT PANIC!  While it sucks, yes, this is something that we’re seeing many many MANY Tappers experiencing right now.

Usually right before a big update hits the games (like Valentine’s Day) the servers go down. It’s usually because they’re running maintenance on them in preparation for the next big event. This isn’t always the case, but I suspect this is the case in this case…:)

So be patient…relax…and keep trying.  Eventually they’ll come back up and we can all get to Tap Tap Tappin again!

In the mean time…do you need some ideas of what to do?  Check out this post for the do’s and don’t’s of the Servers being down.

You can also check out Wookiee’s latest diary entry, add your Caption to our Hump Day Humor Caption This!, work on your entry for our Valentine’s Day Contest, OR talk amogst yourselves as we make this post a special Wednesday Night Open Thread!  So chat it up with each other about anything and everything TSTO related or not as we ALL wait for the servers to come back up 🙂

Can’t wait to chat with my favorite Addicts!
