Kukla's Korner Hockey
Well, what can we say, another great month for KK. We did not expect almost 5 million page views for the month of August, probably the slowest month of the hockey calendar.
Your continued support of KK allows us to add more features, which I am HOPING to say, will be implemented shortly.
The new look KK is so close, yet I want to make sure everything is working so we can hit the ground running. Testing is ongoing and again, KK will be “shutdown” while we move over 16,000 posts to the new look. I will be posting when we do the conversion but in case you miss it and try to visit KK, you just may run into a “not available” notice, so be prepared for that.
Stats for previous months are available here...
We are very close to displaying the new KK layout. We are in final testing mode and should have it up very soon.
KK will be down for a period of time, probably no more than 4 hours while we make the switch from old to new.
A post will go up giving you a more specific time frame for the introduction of the new site.
The concept of KK will not change, we will continue to present the same format but with significant, additional enhancements.
It is a very exciting time for us and we do hope you will agree when you see the new KK layout.
If you have any questions about KK, feel free to ask away in the comments and enjoy your weekend!
Now that Alanah is up, has had her two cups of coffee, maybe we can wish her a Happy “29th” Birthday.
Alanah has been a great addition to KK and things will only get better, real soon.
HBA (Happy Birthday Alanah)!
Miss604 also pays tribute to the Queen.
I believe this may be a good weekend to relax, take some time off and enjoy the beautiful weekend in Michigan.
I will be around, but moving a little slower than normal. A big week ahead for KK readers, just a little hint there folks!
If you have a story you feel folks should be made aware of, feel free to post it in the comment section or, as always, KK members can post in the KK Forums.
Wow, what a month for KK!
Who would have thought the UFA period would have brought so many readers to KK for the month of July?
I expected a slight increase in numbers for the month, but nothing like this. Thank you to everyone who visits KK on a regular basis and it is much appreciated.
The facelift for KK is right around the corner. Expect to see some fantastic enhancements to the site sometime this month. It has been a long process but one well worth waiting for.

KK is experiencing some hosting issues this morning.
Trying to get to the root of the problem now.
update 7:55am, Well things seem to be normal again, but no official word from my hosting company.
Sorry for the morning issues and I will update when the official word comes down.
update 8:18am, from my hosting company…
For the past 3 hours, on and off we have been battling a denial of service attack of extreme size. It has been targeted at two client sites that cover the same topic. Currently we believe the worst is over, and have called in extra assistance to pour through information gathered and to keep ahead of any recurrence of the DoS this morning.
added 10:33am, KK is still experiencing problems. Hopefully this will be resolved soon but in the meantime, all I can do is keep you updated.
KK will be slowly getting back to our normal routine beginning tomorrow. We do hope everyone celebrating the 4th of July has a safe and enjoyable day or extra long weekend.
We will be around so make sure to stop by.
Please remember, if you have had too many “pops”, pass the keys to someone who hasn’t.
The 600th KK member registered over this past weekend, which means we’ll be doing another random draw amongst all KK members. The prize is gift certificate for $25 for either Shop.NHL.com or IceJerseys.com. Paul will do the drawing in the next 24 hours and the winner will be contacted by Friday.
The next drawing will take place after the 800th member registers (which is free, simple and allows you to enter various other contests over the season, too).
Thank you to everyone for all the support, visits, links, comments, tips and friendly words. It makes a busy job rather fun for all of us. And KK will always be a free source of hockey news and views, but we appreciate it if you check out our advertisers once in a while. Cheers!
And now, back to the hockey news…
A less than expected decline in June.
On a sidenote, KK received over 825,000 page views yesterday, so July is off to a very good start.
We also achieved a new record yesterday when 1276 people were visiting KK at one time.
