    What going on? Why does it say this at the botton of the site? It's not right is it?

    Probably "chaosmint" is supposed to be a portal, whatever that is.

    Chaosmint was a forum site started by arn to deal primarily with eDonkey and some other P2P programs as well as Divx. The forums were scrapped a while back and it now just points to here. I'm not sure why he put it there though.

    Glad to hear all is ok, it just seemed odd to see it there, and the fact that it links to forums.macrumors.com :)

    >(arn) you guys notice the smallest things... :)

    (1) You use caps more often in the Article Discussion area and in new threads rather than in posts.
    (2) Duke posted a poll with more than 10 options.
    (3) And, for Pete's Sake, arn. Would you use other smilies than the happy face and the winky? Using just those two makes you look so professional. :( :p

    Speaking of stalker(s) ...

    Will the real AlphaTech stalker(s) please stand up ...

    Edit: On second though I should have used Ellen Feiss as an example, but that would have been way too creepy/sick. :p

    historical note:

    macrumors was "hacked" over a year ago due to some security issues with phpslash that the site was using at the time. no real damage was done, just a hacked news item appeared.

    phpslash was discarded after that.

    Ah, sh**. My cover is blown. :D :rolleyes: :p

    >(wake up) I dont know what I would do if this site went down:p I guess lets leave it at that

    IF the site went down :eek: :( it better be temporarily, as it has been in the past.


    Damn. I guess this site used to attract some ticks and complete pr*cks. Well, I started visiting MR a while after that, though.
