HomeSure-Logo-NMLS-14_thumb_thumb_th[2]OKAY SO HERE'S WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO. You're gonna load this page and it's just gonna sit there. You will not hit refresh. Our two twitter collections will update automatically, putting the news in your eyeballs. Twitter collection #1 is news-only, who has gone where. Twitter collection #2 is the ongoing exultation/panic/depression thread. To participate just @ me.

We are caching the front page, which means you will appeared logged out. You will be logged in on interior pages. Going to interior pages may result in 503s and the like; staying on the front page will get you the latest and greatest news without such risk.

OKAY SO HERE'S OUR SPONSOR. Yep, Homesure Lending. It's like all those Rocket commercials except 1) Matt was not a major contributor to the subprime crisis, so he's got that going for him, 2) Matt never wrote a letter to LeBron James in comic sans*, 3) Matt goes out to various companies to get you the best possible rate. My lender has the word "wholesale" in its name, and this makes me feel great. Also the rate.

Matt's got a ticket offer going for a Michigan football or basketball game. If you're buying a home or refinancing, he's the right guy to call.

*[Probably. I have not checked with him to make sure this is true.]

Answering questions whilst chained to my laptop all day. If I don't get to yours it's almost certainly because it's already been answered several times already, or I'm answering it right now. Greg Little is not flipping. I deeply regret ever bringing his name up in speculation.  There is no silent commit whose name isn't on the schedule above. Don't tweet at croots.

Stay on the front page all day today and you will get news and analysis live. We are planning to get thwomped by traffic so Matt sprung for some additiona internet power and we are gonna make Twitter do most of the heavy lifting. If you want to say something in the saying things box, Twitter Brian.

Would it be good or bad to start an open thread until the servers go boom - before moving over to the front page for the remained of the day.

Also, can someone start a thread tonight when things are uncached and back to normal? There's a good chance post-Gary I'm going to just hold off until things are "all clear."

Good luck today to you and the team, you all have done a phenomenal job all year with this crootin' thing.

Seriously, I am a twitterer and I have no fucking idea what the hell was just "explained" above. Who the fuck is Mike Babcock's hair and do I have to follow new twitter handles or what? 

Can you just send Steve Lorenz to my job and have him tell me what's going on? That would great. Thanks.
