    This upsets me, I have been using Tehskeen for months due to their up-to-date homebrew information, and now to find they are gone is saddening.

    What makes it worse is I started listennig to this as I loaded the page. ;_;

    Any info why they had to knock off for good? This seems like a legal issue...

    Too bad. Despite the constant drama, I really liked the site.

    I wouldn´t be surprised though, if the site magically returns some time.

    Something tells me this is just a Joke, maybe "DRAMA" or something. Brakken would never leave the scene and close his Teshkeen.

    I've heard of it but never really used it.

    Did it link and host Nintendo files?

    And what was the "drama"?

    FINALLY!

    I was bummed out when the guy was alive after his overdose. But at least I still get what I want in a way.

    Break out the beer, we're partying tonight.

    Sorry guys, tehskeen is gone and it ain't ever coming back.

    The loss of tehskeen is a great loss to the community of hacking and homebrewing. They didn't ctrl-c, ctrl-v RSS feeds like nearly every other site, they made wrote their own news. And they never reported on every single homebrew PONG game made, just the homebrew you wanted to read about.

    I'm really distraught over all of this. I don't know how I'll ever bring myself to check about 13 different sites a day just so I can find all of the stories I want to see that were tehskeen reported on every day.

    I know a lot of you, hell, most of you, didn't like Brakk3n. To that I say fuck you. He's done more for every person reading this then he'll ever realize and I sorrowfully wish him good luck in his future endeavors.

    Goodbye Brakk3n. RIP tehskeen.

    This must be a bad joke. Brakken, if you read this, please revive Tehskeen, maybe as a news-only site. I did appreciate your work every day since I discoverd the Wii scene. Fuck all the haters, they have no live. Damn it cant be..

    Brakken,

    If you read this, I want let you know I'm one of the many who loved this site. If the backup issue is a problem, I think the community will do whatever they can to revive the site.

    Wordpress blog, rapidshare hosting....anything. I have a pretty hefty hosting account I'm willing to share. Please, man. You were the best.

    I know a lot of us probably took your work for granted, but you were the best.


    And that douche that posted earlier...well...just think about it. He's probably like that in real life and has about 2 friends who "forget" to call him when they're hanging out.

    I wish you the best of luck in whatever you do.

    Farewell TehSkeen...
    That site was a unique place, run by a man who stood by his principles, maybe sometimes a little too much, but always essentially right. Brakken and his site were never afraid to speak out for their beliefs, and for the truth, and he practised what he preached. It was a site like no other in the scene, and quite the opposite of this place. Goodbye...

    how the hell can somebody update a server of a website as big as tehskeen was, without having a backup server running parallel. never thought that brakken could make such a dumb mistake. can somebody say where djdynamite can be reached. i would like to know what he thinks about all this.

    Yeah, but someone from the internets found out his number and called 911.

    I really don't like seeing TehSkeen go like this, but I was expecting it, he was continuous taking breaks from posting news lately...
