On this date, October 25, in the Homestuck Fandom
2011: A hugely anticipated MSPA update caused hundreds of thousands of fans to be on the edge of their seats spamming F5 on their keyboards. Hussie had aniticpated a huge flow to happen today, so he talked with the head of Newgrounds to attempt to host the animation on a server that could better handle the load.
Newgrounds crashed within 10 minutes of the update.
Hussie eventually uploaded the source files onto MegaUpload, but the fervent fans overloaded their servers too!
It was a beautiful and painful day to be a Homestuck.
