    I wish I could've been on the irc channel at that time, but for some strange reason, bots keep banning me [​IMG]

    Anyways, that was great, to many people on the net are gullible, but GBATemp was the first site I saw that didn't have a link linking to the backup site, and yeah...can someone translate that into english?

    how original, you're only the 10th site today that was closed by some of the million types of RIAA-organisations.

    wouldn't have hurt to be littlebit original really.

    There are a lot of sites that are doing some pretty cool things for April Fool's Day that didn't involve the closing of the entire site. Those get my kudos, even though I personally hate the day. Suprnova is going Japanese (but still totally useable) and Google is offering jobs. Those are cool. This was just really kind of lame, in my opinion. GBA-Nfo is even announcing Final Fantasy III. That was cool. This was just the board going offline for two hours when it's already been offline a lot lately.
