Nothing about the death of Roll on Friday?



Rest in pieces



I go to the Easyjet website to get my fix of orange website.

The Wikipedia article says that “The sole hamster powering the site seems to have died in April 2018.”

Sounds like it could be a server issue? Or maybe undergoing a redesign? Mind you, the Wiki article also lists it as existing in the past tense. Maybe a quiz winner finally took them up on “boozy lunch with the RoF team” and they got cleaned out.



Apparently their server has imploded…


Corbyn. Symphathiser

That’s good, then. I like RoF, but it wouldn’t hurt for the site to get a bit of a post-2003 spruce.
