Kukla's Korner Hockey
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.
To see stats for previous months, start here.
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.
To see previous month stats, start here.
With the UFA signing period kicking off at noon EDT on Sunday, July 1st, we just wanted to let you know we will be around to announce signings and all the talk that goes with this time period.
Although KK is very active during the weekday, it should be interesting to see the traffic stats for the weekend.
KK members, don’t forget to use the KK Forum for any breaking news. We receive notification of any post there and will follow up if need be.
If you live in the Detroit area, you know storms are popping up all over the place.
I need to sign off for a bit, will be back ASAP.
KK members, don’t forget to use the KKF if anything breaks.
update 2:10pm, Here comes another one….
I hope Alanah doesn’t read this until Sunday evening which means she is catching up on some well deserved sleep.
I left her on her own during the draft and wanted to publicly thank her for the work she did at KK. Remember, she was dealing with a 3 hour time difference too and I am sure those very early morning posts she made were done in half-daze mode but she came through with flying colors.
Great job “A”!
