Eventually The Chance Taker Hits The Jackpot…
My Dad used to tell me that a lot when I was young, dumb, and took a lot of stupid risks as most teenagers did. Being the perpetual optimist I was, I thought he meant “Keep trying son, and eventually you’ll nail it!” Wrong. He was talking about the polar opposite: Keep screwing around and eventually you’re gonna’ be taking a dirt nap. Dad was a little…dark. Well, I hit the “jackpot” last month, so-to-speak. In a rush to get the site updated with a lot of great new merchandise, I rushed through some file replacements and wound up breaking the store. Yep, that’s me, 30-year-plus tech veteran goofed up his own site. It happens. The challenge with this goof up is that despite having backups of everything and replacing the replacement files, the site’s still wouldn’t work properly. Good news is we’re back online now.
In the meantime, I offer my apologies for those of you who have come to the site and were unable to browse the categories. Ironically the products were viewable via the search function if you searched for titles of games (and we have them in stock)–but that was half-assed and I don’t like to do anything half-assed.
If you hit the site this week you’ll most likely be greeted by a pop-up notice offering a little gift as our way of apologizing for the inconvenience of being offline for so long. It’s a store-wide 20% discount good from October 1 through October 7, so please, take advantage of it while it’s live as it covers everything in stock–including sales items. Use discount code goblinssuck when you check out and it will automatically apply the discount to your cart total.
In the meantime, I’ll be licking my wounds and learning how to slow down a bit more next time I get notice that I have multiple updates that need attention.
