Kukla's Korner Hockey
We promise to have it fixed as soon as possible. Sorry for the difficulties.
Update 1:00pm ET: Problems solved. Thanks for your patience.
Paul talks to Eric Duhatschek of the Globe & Mail this morning about all things hockey including the hit on Kesler last night, CBC’s Satellite Hot Stove and more. Eric’s also talks about his new book (more info here).
From Eric’s publisher:
Eric Duhatschek was the winner of the Hockey Hall of Fame’s Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award for “distinguished contributions to hockey writing” in 2001. In 2000, after twenty years of writing about the NHL and the Calgary Flames, he joined globeandmail.com, where he writes a five-times-a-week NHL column. A frequent contributor to Hockey Night in Canada’s Satellite Hot Stove segment, he has covered four Winter Olympics, nineteen Stanley Cup finals, every Canada Cup and World Cup since 1981, plus two world championships. Most recently, he was appointed as the newest member of the Hockey Hall of Fame’s annual Selection Committee.
Interview can be heard on the player below, or you can download it directly here.
Update 1:42pm ET -
Some of you may have noticed a dotted-line underneath any links within the posts at KK. Hopefully this will resolve the problem some folks were having with actually seeing the link. You will also notice when you hover over the link, the dots fade away.
We have also moved the comments up, right underneath the name of the poster. We have kept the comments in the old place too, but those will soon be gone. Hopefully everyone will get used to the new location.
At times we have been experiencing slow load time issues.
We are looking into the problem and hope to have it corrected soon.
Unfortunately, Kukla’s Korner was unavailable for a while tonight. Our host apparently suffered some serious difficulties, as it appears a number of other websites on the same server went offline as well.
I’m not sure about the cause of the problems as yet, so I can’t guarantee they are over. For the moment, I’ll just cross my fingers and hope the site stays online.
Sorry for the inconvenience—thanks for being patient.
update 6:56am(Paul), All is well… There was a scheduled maintenance that I failed to note here at KK…
Despite all the changes around here, the KK Hockey Links Page is still in business and updated with a lot of new sites, blogs and hockey media to check out. A great resource.
You can also access that page anytime from a link on the left sidebar under “More Hockey Links.”
note: If you’ve sent us a note about your site or blog and it’s not included, there is a chance I overlooked your email. My apologies for the hassle, but please feel free to send me another notification any time.
We are experiencing a KK Forum issue right now. New posts are not showing up so we are looking into this problem.
We ask you avoid posting until you get the all clear…thanks.
update 2:37pm., KK Forum is now open….
What else can I say!
If you are having some issues, can I suggest you clear your cache and or cookies. This morning we have an issue in the KK Forum which prevents you from making a new post. When this message is gone, you can post again.
added 11:21am, In order to fix the KK Forum, Kukla’s Korner will be offline beginning at 5pm ET today. This should take no more than an hour to fix.
update 2:35pm, The KK Forum issue has been resolved, therefore KK will not be down this evening. You can now post in the Forum.
Post will remain sticky for a day or so.
Well, enough with the testing, it looks like the new-look Kukla’s Korner will be converted sometime this evening.
So if you try to access KK later today, you may run into a 404, 505, or whatever type of error or it just may be a message stating check again soon. Whatever, you know the conversion is in process.
I have been told KK can be down between 3-5 hours, but that is just a guestimate.
All I can say right now is just check back every-so-often, eventually the new-look Kukla’s Korner will appear.
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...
