    Everytime I start a New Session on any browser I get this:

    Then after refreshing, I get normal TPU website.

    Is TPU hacked or something?

    I was getting that too but now it's a 404 error saying "something is missing" and a pick of a GFX card, minus the GPU! :laugh:

    Cool April Fools joke...

    ...but once the joke is over, how do we get back to actually browsing the forums? The only way I could find to get in was to follow an email link to a subscribed thread and then use the drop down box a the bottom of the page to navigate between subsections.

    But it's getting annoying rather quickly.

    If you get the notice, just refresh the page (F5).

    Nooo guys, it's a sad day for TPU :cry:

    Kim Dotcom, you know who he is, no? Well it just transpired that he's not W1zzard.

    OMG I think I'll get removed from moderating and even get banned for blurting W1zzard's identity in public. But since it's 1st April and probably no one would ever believe it less harm would be done this way.

    He's one of the guys behind the Pirate Bay. It's good that I said it now, because no one will believe me since it's 1st April, yet justice will be done, ultimately :rockout:

    That's the real reason for the warning on the homepage. It wasn't a joke. :(

    BP's right.
    We knew it was coming and had to do a stealth download to your browsers to use a proprietary IP protocol (IPv5.3) so we could redirect the forums through several layers of anonomous proxies to keep it going.

    W1zz is in jail right now using the smartphone we smuggled to him in a loaf of bread. :cry:

    At least the forums are up, though I'm still getting some anomalies.

    Basically someone pressed the red button and TPU's getting destroyed :( It shouldn't have ended like this, I've been getting help from this site since 2007, and I really got good help. It's just nor fair that for one slip-up of the boss with Pirate Bay the entire site now will get forfeited :cry:

    Kreij, you shouldn't be revealing the boss' location. It's embarrasing. Please stop. Please don't talk about it here, just send me a pm ok?

    Yeah, AIG. I like April 1st for that reason. Lots of fun even if it's more work. :rockout:
