Torrentbytes IRC earlier today:
<&> TORRENTBYTES UPDATE:
<&> entire database is gone, has been stolen by Windpaw, who took the DB away and refuses to give it back no matter what
<&> if you wanna kill someone, kill him
<&> since there is no DB anymore we`re going to start over
<&> that means new stats, 0 upload, 0 download, 0 ratio
<&> currently the coders are working on the source code, upgrading it with newer security
<&> once done, the site will be put online again
<&> that`s kinda it for you since there`s not much more info available right now
<&> we`ll keep you informed about when and how things will be taken care of
<&> so remember, if you wanna shoot someone: shoot Windpaw...
<&> DDOS attacks came from [Windpaw] with the TB server >.<
<> & m8,, whats winpaws resoning for not handing over backups files?
<&> he wants us to make a fool of ourselves [lie for him]
<> how so ?
<&> so that he can return so that everyone will be: Windpaw, our hero <3
<> & just wondering,, why has no temp site been arrected >? staff fights ? or staff say no till TB returns ?>
<&> security and protection is an issue
<> arr,, so testing, cooolness
<&> if we use the old code it`s way to easy to hack and take us down, the old code is being upgraded and tuned
<> thats where winpaw was good,, he new his shit
<&> plus certain uploaders only wanna upload if we can guarantee their safety
