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."

'cause I am through finding blame
