Ok guys, I have some bad news.

PoD is down for the time being. Even though Servage.net allows us almost a trabyte of bandwidth, we still went over. :( (How, I don't know. I only saw a couple links to PoD outside the forums...)

<a href="http://portablesofdoom.org/" target="_blank">see for yourself</a>.

This site's still up on its feet, but I don't know if the remaining bandwidth will last the rest of the month. (What's the allotment here, Ben?)

Sky, you said you have unlimited bandwidth? Would you mind setting up a temporary <a href="http://www.punbb.org/" target="_blank">PunBB</a> board, so we have a refuge in case the main site decides to go belly-up on us? It would really be helpful. (I said Punbb instead of phpbb because it's less graphics oriented and it's more obscure so it shouldn't get nearly as many spambots.)

I hope the main site stays active this month... :(

The site is 'spacking out' a bit. If anyone needs me to mirror anything, then just ask.

Okay so today I saw the Xbox360 laptop...

It looks amazing! I tought it would look good, but this is just impossible! The screen even looks better than my tv screen :) There is absolutely nothing that can top this (well maybe a PS3 laptop).

Dead Rising is an awesome game btw :P

I put all the externally hosted things (like the video and photo pack) and moved them to Benheck.com since it's unlimited now.

Thanks for all your help! It's amazing how wrecked everything got. Monday from midnight to 3:30 PM we had 80,000 some unique visits and 2.5 million hits.

:shock: *jaw hitting the floor noise*

DAMN! That's got to be a site record!

Did you happen to mirror <a href="http://bicostp.portablesofdoom.org/360l ... .htm">this thingy I threw together</a>? (that format works well. I might use it again...)

I saw your comment. I beleive the one who posted negatively was an imposter, since he just was so over the top and also the other person had -1 stars, and he had 1.
