    Never, most likely. Their servers were confiscated, so I'm told.

    Don't think money will be an issue, rather getting the DB, and rebuilding the tbdev code?...

    Servers are the least of their worries right now.

    I've not seen such an outpouring of separation angst ever. Consider Oink a hand in a glass of water. Something else will come up, and hopefully something safer and more respectful to users and uploaders and the rest of BT land. My guess, from reading the comments, is that they considered themselves greater than they were. Vanity topples even the greatest giants.

    the same thing keeps coming to my mind...... "Backup"
    as much I think they do indeed have a backup somewhere its the fact that with 180,000 members they would need allot of servers to hold everyone.
    just say they comeback at the end of the month then everyone at the same time logs on which would tend happen. wow talk about stress on the servers.
    its going to take an another army of servers just to hold everyone!

    that's exactly what happened to demonoid when it choked up back in July(??). When the server finally came back online the users flooded the load so bad that it crashed again. It took WEEKS before everything (forums, etc) was back in place.

    Well since it was such a huge website they must have some kind of backup database someplace where it is only accesible for most trusted people.
    Have a nice day.
