Email Of The Week: Fixing Linda's Farm, So That It Will Load

We occasionally post a sample of the awesome emails that we receive to our tips@techcrunch email account. In the past we’ve been asked for help in getting Facebook accounts restored, we’ve been asked by Car and Driver to participate in a link farm with them, we’ve battled a journalism student over the spelling of the word “website” and we have assisted ABC news with their struggles with new technology.

Today it’s a much simpler request. And the request is so short and enigmatic that it’s almost poetic. In some ways this is the cry of a lost generation, desperately clicking away on crops as life passes them by.

Linda has asked us to fix her farm, so that it will load. We can only guess that she is referring to Farmville. But we’re at a loss as to what the exact problem might be that is causing load problems. We wish her well in her quest to load that farm and carry on with her life.
