Limited access to OT today

Okay, we’re up and running, but I don’t want a big flood of people here … yet.

Remember to always check OT’s MySpace page for updates — that is command center central whenever there are problems with the site.

And don’t panic if you aren’t able to access OT later today; it just means I needed to disable it while I work on the next step.

Thanks so much for hanging in there!


  1. You’re the best . . .

    My sister and I check this site every day–she lives a few states away and we call to let each other know when something big pops up on the Tally. We really appreciate this site!

  2. tanster, you’re such a rockstar. thank you for all your hard work. you give us crazy office fanatics a community and let us feel like we’re normal! ;)

  3. long-time reader and lurker, first-time commenter: you forced me out of hiding to say, you rock. I love this site and really appreciate all the work you do! Thank you!

  4. I hope you’re able to get the site up and running again without any more head aches..I’m thinking this has become more then a full time job..We should be paying you for this………My gas bill has gone through the roof, you’ll have to wait to be on my payroll.. :) Oh screw it, I don’t need to drive. But I do need my daily Office gossip!!!!

  5. NoGould, on my MySpace page, click “Add to Friends.” Once I add you, you’ll be able to see the full page.

  6. sadly, i feel so relieved officetally is back. more relieved than a person should feel about a website.

  7. Thank you so much for all your work Tanster! I didn’t know what I was gonna do with OT down. I appreciate it very much as I’m sure everyone else does, you rock!

  8. yay! i’m so glad that this is up and running…i check this site multiple times a day! it’s my favorite Office fan site!

  9. I’m sure I’m not the only one who really loves this site, so I bet if you wanted to raise some money for a dedicated server, many of us would be able to chip in, even if only a few dollars at a time. Just a thought.

  10. yah! my daily ritual is going to my email and checking OT. thank you for putting me back on the routine. Love ya tanster!

  11. Amen Brian (#15) Thank you Jennie for all that you do and all the heart and soul you put into this site for all of us! I’m sure you’ll work out all the kinks soon – I feel like we’re a family displaced by a disaster :(

    Keep the Faith!

  12. Thanks Jennie for all your hardwork! You certainly help feed our Office appetite!

  13. NBC should donate no-strings server space to permanently host Office Tally, considering you do more than their marketing people to promote this show.

  14. Add me to the thank you’s to Jennie! You’re amazing with all the news and updates you give us fans. I couldn’t get through a week before an Office episode without you!

  15. I check your site daily… it was killing me when you went down! Thanks for all the work you do.

  16. Glad I was able to get in – if only a for a moment. Good luck getting this back up, Jennie. Thank you for all the work you do. This site is the best one for updated info on The Office and all topics regarding the cast and show. You’re dawesome.

  17. tanster take you’re time. we’ll be here when you’ve got everything up and running normally again (:
    this only makes me appreciate the awesomeness of officetally even more!

  18. Ah, it is good to be back. I’m going to have to check the DSM-IV to see if there is a pyschological disorder related to hyper-dependence upon a web-based communication portal.

  19. I just want to say THANK YOU so much for all your hard work, Tanster! I don’t know what all us die hard Office fanatics would do without you and OfficeTally. Thanks again.

  20. Thanks Tanster for all of the work you put into this website. I’m a silent (until now) OT fan who, I’m sorry to say, has probably been a major force in the shut down problems considering how much I check OT every day! It’s great to have it back up and running, thanks again!

  21. You know, #15 (brian) has a really good idea there. Do you think there’s a way to make that happen? Maybe contact the show since they know how much you do here?

  22. I congratulate you on your tireless efforts yet wonder…was the downed site really an intervention to force some of us to live up to our “no previews” promises? Try as I might, I can’t get the preview monkey off my back.

  23. YAY TANSTER!!!!!!! You rock, not even kidding! You deserve a medal or a gold star or a thumbs up for a job well done!

  24. I’d give you ten kudos if I could. You are wonderful. Love you, love Officetally, Love The Office!

  25. Thanks for getting something going in time for Thursday! I hope we don’t blow up the whole interweb!!

  26. Whoo! You’re back! And I concur with Brian, get NBC to help you out, they’re in your debt :)

  27. I just want to add my thanks for your hard work with this site. I probably check it too much, but I really love how often you keep it updated and fun! Like lots of other people, I don’t think I realized how much I check it until it was down. Thanks!

  28. Thanks, Jennie! You’re the best blogmaster out there! Hope you win that award, especially now that you’ve showed how dedicated you are to keeping us addicts appeased.

  29. Jennie rocks my socks off! Thank you so much for your hard work. I was so discombobulated without OT.

  30. You are definitely bucking to take away Stanley’s Good Work dundie this year. Kudos and second drink to you!

  31. Ok, here goes another Dundie Award nomination for Jennie!

    Off topic but does anyone know why Jenna wasn’t on Conan last night? I DVR’d it but haven’t watched it so I can’t say that for sure she wasn’t on, but I’ve read that she wasn’t on. Is she supposed to be on tonight instead?

  32. Thanks Jennie! I absolutely love this site. I check this site everyday, and I have felt lost without it! I won’t stay on long this time, and I really appreciate all the time and effort you put into this site. Officetally is the BEST!!

  33. Thank you Tanster! I am so glad to see OT back on my screen! I was having withdrawal symptoms :o)

  34. Is it possible to not have a private myspace page. Not everyone has a myspace account for various reasons…

  35. thanks for putting this back online for us, jennie. with all the work you do for the show, maybe nbc could hook you up with some bandwidth? or at least chip in on the bill?

  36. I didn’t realize how addicted to this site I was until it was gone. I’m so glad its back! :)

  37. I almost teared up when I clicked and realized you’re back. I’d just like to add to all the love you’re getting, and repeat, YOU ARE AWESOME!

  38. As I finally viewed the home page I felt a wave of relief…thank goodness I got my hit for today!

  39. Great job, Tanster! And just in time for the finale. It seems to be a pretty smooth transition – so far so good. So I know dedicated servers are expensive, and for all the work you do I am happy to throw some donations in a tip jar somewhere. So just tell me where to route the funds.

  40. Glad to see things are starting to get back to normal :) You rock! Thanks so much for all you do for us :)

  41. tanster, you deserve a medal for all the hard work and dedication you put into this site for all of our benefit. I’m glad to see the site up and running sort of, and I hope everything gets cleared up soon. Good luck.


  42. Officetally = Life.
    Tanster, you’re the greatest. I’m glad to see OT is up..even if it has limited access. I was starting to have withdrawals. =P

  43. I agree with #52. I don’t have a MySpace account and I was left for days wondering what had happened to my beloved OfficeTally so soon before the season finale. I don’t want to have to suffer that kind of heartache again.

  44. I agree with DrunkBiking #36 who agrees with Brian #15, pay up NBC!
    Thank you Jennie, for the 35 hours a week you spend on pimpin’ the tally. That is a lot of hours.

  45. Thanks for getting your site back up Jennie because I was going through serious withdrawals! I can’t handle not having OfficeTally during my finals.

  46. Thanks so much Tanster! I honestly know that I spend way to much time on this site and so the past few days have been really hard (TWSS)! Thanks for all your work for us obsessive dunderheads!

    32: I read your comment and thought my head was going to explode. I took my AP Psychology test yesterday and so now I’m trying to avoid anything that has to do with psych for as long as I possibly can =D

  47. You officially rock. Which you already know, because everyone else beat me to saying it. But seriously, you are amazing. I check your site way too often.

  48. Oh my god, I have been HOMELESS online (and less than 24 hrs to go until the finale) until yet another google search turned up the way in.

    Thank you Tanster for this site, for hanging in, for all the hard work. I have no technical advice for you, but I am a writer and you need to get your story out to the media so someone can step in with some technical support/backing/whatever it is you need. Someone needs to sponsor you

    This is criminal for you not to be fully zoppity for the finale. you should be able to enjoy all the efforts of your work amid all the posts and excitement.

  49. YES!!! I can’t believe how many times I’ve check this site these past couple of days.

    For future reference Tanster, when the sight goes down, try to make your myspace public so everyone can see it.

    Not everyone has a myspace :)

  50. ilove this website!!! it’s awesome, and i just can’t function without it. keep up the good work.

  51. Ditto what Greg (#74) said. :-)

    And OMW — I did not realize until this site was down how often I was here!

  52. I visit this site multiple times every day, and was going crazy not being to view your MySpace to find out what was going on the last few days! You do an amazing job, Tanster — we really appreciate all the time and effort you put into this site!

  53. Personally I preferred the look and layout of the temporary site, I found it easier to read, easier on my eyes in general. It’s not a huge deal, but just sayin’.

  54. What’s with the password thing?

    I had to find out what was going on at the forum on because I’m not a member of My Space. I was going into serious withdrawal!

  55. Jennie, thank you so much for all of the hard work you put into this website. I’m relatively new to The Office and OT. I didn’t start watching The Office until “The Convention”, but I’ve been addicted ever since. I started checking out OT after hearing Jenna mention it during the Season 2 commentaries and on her myspace page, and just like with The Office, I’ve become addicted to OT. I only started posting a couple of weeks ago, and I had just finished a post in relation to “Beach Games” on Saturday, but when I tried to send it, I got the message that OT was down. I was afraid that I had caused the entire site to crash. I certainly hope that wasn’t so.

    Again, thank you so much for everything that you do here. I cannot wait to see what happens tonight.

  56. THERE you are! Also going through withdrawal. I haven’t read all the comments, but please make your myspace page public for those of us who don’t have an account there, and dedicate a post to it here so we’ll know we can get in. So glad you set up the temp tally! How awful that this would happen just as the season closes and the blog voting is underway. Thanks for all you do. I’m addicted to OfficeTally as well!
