    I will translate for the n00bs. In other words, W1z is saying:

    "Are you fucking stupid, the review was what caused this whole fucking mess. I got a phone call that woke me up from my drug induced slumber and I had to take down the site to do damage control. I am on my 5th cup of coffee and fucking pissed at those douchebuckets from Italy who leaked the review in the first place. Fuck this I'm going back to bed."

    The level of maturity in this thread is below a level I cannot comprehend. Calm down.

    Google is magic. :cool:

    My point is only that they're doing a good thing by getting the word out quickly. I appreciate it when someone gives me the links to the things I want to read. It's awful kind of them. It's a shame that it became such a fiasco, what with TPU going down and all.

    that would actually be a complement since w1z is in germany and the servers are spread out around the globe. ;)

    However, the overzealous chick with the whip did.......

    P.S. You should totally get a refund for hits after the use of the safe word.

    I just have to say, that my life, felt incomplete without TPU.

    I had to use the Google Cache version of TPU just to ease the pain.

    I missed the downtime, was in bed :D Didn't miss the surprise last night though...
    I reckon if TPU didn't go down, the "most users ever online" would have been beaten; it's over 5,800 at the mo :cool:

    4 page review(in order of importance):

    TPU crashed under stress from someone linking to an unpublished review(think GTX 500)

    Easy Rhino is the patsy

    PVTCaboose is the real robber, thats why he's wearing a mask

    Solaris17 messed on his keyboard and had to clean it
