tweaksrus.com site hacked and down

this is not a good sign for a few days now tweaks rus has been down.
at first the home page was down and the hacker left the forums up.
then they hit again and now the whole site is down and all of the drivers and utilities and etc.
are gone for good, we don't know when the site will be back or even if it will be back.
so we have to wait on news as to when it will be back if ever.

Sadly it looks as if they've lost everything as far as their poor forums community goes...They seem to be regrouping around a new site name... sorry, no longer have the E-mail....from a friend.

yes i was until they banned me well goz banned me.
because he didn't think i should be helping people.
and i also agreed with you on something.
so he got in my face about it and was really rude.
and i hate that when people are like that.
so i told him he needed to change his tone.
so he got worse and worse so i just told him off and he banned me.
no biggy i belong to a better place now.
and you are also welcome for the info

I don't suppose putting older drivers in a "pay-to-access" area would have gone down well with Nvidia.

Thanks Gizmo.

Yeah SemperFI was a member of TRU for about 8 months before it got hacked and they lost everything (Which is what hapened) Now their Forum software isnt very userfriendly and the colours hurt my eyes.

Yeah I reckon thats how most of the moderators giot to be moderators on there. By Brown nosing. Thats why I will never be a moderator on there. I dont brown nose for anybody. I will help anybody I can help but brown nosing isnt the way I go.

yeah is seen you on there saying the blue hurts your eyes.
with the white text.
they do need better themes.
they got a little cocky with you when you said something about it.
i am incognito on there so i don't get banned again.
i wrote you about the linux.
but don't say anything please.
you are a good guy and you do help alot of people as did i.
you even helped me back in the day when i first joined tru about two years ago.

Yeah They got cocky because their theme does acutaly hurt my eyes. But dont worry I have a proper TRU replacement. Only thing is I wont be able to have download files and I cant mod drivers but ill do my best to rember the way TRU was laid out and I will have one or two nice themes. You will be welcome on there as a mod as soon as im ready.

Ill just ask GOZ and JR If I can use the name TweaksRUs. If now The site will called TRU returns LOL.
