The Sun, but still LOL:

AN ONLINE gay dating service CRASHED seconds after the first Olympic athletes touched down last week due to massive increase in demand.

The mobile phone app - Grindr - lets gay men zero in on potential partners nearby using GPRS in their phones.

Experts on the site believe the arrival of the Olympic teams on Monday sparked a flood of new customers - and crashed the service in East London.

One frustrated Londoner said: "It happened almost as soon as the teams got here.

Either loads of athletes were logging on to meet fellow Olympians or were looking to bag a local."The Grindr system obviously couldn't cope.

Users claimed the service in East London was down for 24 hours.

Founder Joel Simkhai said in Los Angeles: "I want to personally apologize to users. "I know it was frustrating. I was frustrated myself. I also rely on Grindr in my day-to-day personal life. It made me feel disconnected."Our tech team worked around the clock to solve the problems and to whip Grindr back into shape."

I wish I was gay men want to  women want to  with you

“They cheated us again and again, made decisions behind our back, presenting us with completed facts. That’s the way it was with the expansion of NATO in the East, with the deployment of military infrastructure at our borders. They always told us the same thing: 'Well, this doesn't concern you.'" -Vladimir Putin
