Back On The Scene

If you've been by the hill the last few days, you've noticed we had some technical difficulties. Here's the deal: for the first time ever we exceeded our monthly bandwidth allotment, and our hosting service turned the site off for a few days. How did this happen you ask? Well it was all thanks to a post Ack wrote about a certain insane, incredibly creepy looking native of Minto, New Brunswick who decapitated his neighbor and walked across the US border with a bag of weapons and a bloody chainsaw. You all know who I'm talking about. I'm not writing his name because when Ack used his name in the first post it got us to the top of the pops on Google, which led to the avalanche of traffic.

So what are we going to do about it you ask? The short answer is nothing. Well actually, the long answer is nothing as well. The hill has always been a hobby for us, and as such, we've tried to keep it free for us to maintain. We're thinking it was a fluke that we ended up on in the #1 spot on Google for a story that so many people were searching for (seriously, what is the fascination with this dude? It must be his Misfits styles hair, or perhaps his bug-eyed insanity is mesmorizing), but if it happens again, we'll get our bandwidth increased and keep the site up.

We love the traffic, but we don't want to be known as the site to visit for hard & fast coverage of chainsaw massacres. We try and write some funny stuff for the people, and we think we've written way funnier stuff than that post, so hopefully all those people who came for the chainsaw killer details will come back and visit us again. But we know you need the hill, so we'll do our best to keep it current and keep it available.
