    the crash was caused because the site engine is not designed to handle that load for unpublished reviews. no problem for published

    Up until two hours ago, on the forum website at the bottom it said: "most users ever online 27 March 2010" Now it says: 9 Nov 2010

    And I had it worse than all you guys. TPU was down AND my cable was out!(Cable Internet was still working fine though.:ohwell:)

    Ah, so basically a fail safe if anyone happens to find your unpublished reviews then. Excellent...even it if was unintentional.

    Next time, we'll redirect easy-to-guess unpublished URLs to a Justin Bieber music video, and hotlinked unrelased images to his baby pictures.

    Oh, I've just realised that I can profit from this. All I have to do is apply some victim culture. I'll find one of those nice friendly "no win no fee" lawyers and apply them to W1zzard!

    Sorted. ;)

    At the bare minimum, the writer of said review, W1zz, and Btarunr. This is because the writer has it in there possession, W1zz has access to everything including their souls, and Btarunr is the editor.

    I can't say if anyone outside this group has access as I do not have that information. For all I know all the mods have access to the reviews prior to their release.

    P.S. I also know that Sneekpeet, Solaris17, and erocker lead the TPU resurrection ceremony as I was part of the committee involved. The amount of blood needed to violate the laws of physics is insane. I mean we all know that computers still require a small amount of dark magic to work, but bring several servers back online across the globe. My god have mercy on our souls and many those dead boars find peace in Nigythica. :shadedshu

    I believe these quotes pretty much sums up the course of events for last night.

    Reasons TPU is freakin awesome: Drug induced slumber, douchebuckets from Italy, Hookers, Coke, GPU-Z, 580SLI, Easy Rhino, PVT and Solaris. DAMN I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!! :toast:
     
    Solaris17 and mlee49 say thanks.

    yeah the downtime was quite shocking actually, when i was debating with bastenegia suddenly all the page was white and then when i was visiting guru3d forum i found the shocking truth the GTX 580 was leaked, i was shocked but not because the leak, but because wizz have tricked me to believe nvdia was a douch and not sent any card to TPU
