Ef You Treyarch...

What an insane day “24″ style…

When I woke up and noticed vanlandw.com wasn’t connecting to the mysql database I knew today wasn’t going to JUST be the “24″ season premiere.

After figuring out every site on the-bob.org was dead I thought what could be the only thing that could do that. With sleep in my eyes on a whim I went to digg and found the bauercount website was submitted to the front page.

About 45 minuets of hitting the front page of digg the mysql server on the-bob was not responding. I started chatting with jjafuller and decided the site needed to be moved. The downtime for the site honestly wasn’t bad but just crazyness. The last thing I thought would happen today was happening. DNS entries were done redirects and god knows what else.

Countless thanks to jjafuller for all his help. Every “24″ fan that enjoyed the page today owes him a mammoth thanks.

After going to get coffee and hitting Costco and Meijers with the gato I got back to my “abode” and started getting ready for 8pm and making sure bauercount was still working.

The premiere was amazing I’ll talk about it after the episodes tomorrow.

After everything I thought winded down I get a phone call from vanbergs while he is at work. Apparently a Fox Affiliate in Washington D.C. ran a 24 story and included bauercount in their story. Link to the video (minor season 6 spoilers with clips but nothing TOO awful if you love vanlandw you will watch the video).

My heavens the video is so funny. Bloodthirsty, obsessive, dedicated….SHEER….it’s so freaking hysterical. Please watch the video before the website takes it away because I don’t have a way to save it. Tom Fitzgerald is the man.

To sum this up I’m very sorry to anybody with a website on the-bob. I didn’t mean to take your websites down today and it should never happen again. Just a crazy and amazing day.

    Love your work on the kill count. Great stuff.

    Will you admit you’re famous NOW? That video was so awesome.

  3. Kramer says:

    That video was fucking sweet. Harper’s magazine, some TV station in D.C., front page of Digg; you’re getting famous. Well, at least Bauer Count is.

    I tried saving the video with a videodownloader I have, but it didn’t work :-(

    btw on 1/15…it’s curtis manning on the new kill, and it was probably with the signature bauer hk that you’ve listed before.

    I have a sense you might like this one. The new colourful Jack Bauer Challenge, and most importantly, the place where you can create your own in a minute. Hilarious….


    Love this site

    Out of the first five “days” of “24″, it appears Jack spent roughly one hour in total killing folks! Jack is badass personified. He could kick Chuck Norris AND Bruce Willis’ butt at the same time.

    Prince Vanlandw… Kudos are appropriate, and the recognition well-deserved… King Van is honored by the affiliation with a true Van-Bauer-Count celebrity!!!

  18. [...] After getting flooding with comments about updating my website I figured I should update my website.  Things have been busy but good though the month of January.  A few bumps on the road but mostly smooth sailing. Apparently my traffic on my blog has tripled from last month so I should throw an update here. I’ve been spending a good amount of time at the Grand Rapids Library.  It’s utterly amazing the amount of knowledge and media is stored at a library. I’ve been able to get travel books, books on cat care, and tons of DVD’s and music CD’s.  All completely free. Currently I have the first season of “Six Feet Under” out and have a few holds placed on items.  I recommend to all to get a library card ASAP. [...]

  19. [...] On the TV series 24, Jack Bauer sometimes kills someone. More on this phenomena here. [...]

  20. [...] I thought the story put together was humorious well spirited. The piece came out very much like the D.C. story I blogged about in January. They both talked about Jacktracker (oddly enough they are showcasing on the season 5 map, season [...]
