It's been 'upgrading' forever!

<looks at Lord Ebonstone>

Curse you for introducing this site! :evil:

Yeah, was wondering the same thing. Rage looks at Ron and is probably thinking the same thing.

Since I know what you both are thinking and have already checked on it you'll be waiting a while before thought can become fruition.

I have no clue where it went... which is a crying shame.  I can only assume they were losing money on the deals and decided to abandon ship, but maybe they really are 'upgrading' and we'll see the site again at some  point.

Quote from: "ATB"
I don't know what anyone is thinking...

I will attempt to translate based on pure speculation.  However for amusement value, I will try to put it in the form of a Hitchhiker's exchange.

Knightshade played by Zahpod Beeblebrox
Rage played by Ford Prefect
AgtFox played by Trillian
ATB played by Arthur Dent
Lord Ebonstone played by Slartibartfast
Dark El played by Marvin the paranoid android
and
Me played by Eddie the Shipboard Computer

Arthur:       What?

Zaphod:       Did the monkey say something?

Arthur:       I resent that, I think I have a right to know whats going on.

Arthur:       Perhaps we should ask Slartibartfast.

Zaphod:       Quiet, I'm thinking.

Ford:         Perhaps that would be easier if you stopped drinking.

Zaphod:       I'm not thinking with that head, so why shouldn't I have a good time?

Arthur:       Look, I still don't know what's going on?

Ford:         Arthur, I expect you're quite used to that by now.

Zaphod:       I have this really awesome plan that will solve all our problems.

Trillian:     Not again. (on intercom) Marvin, Zaphod is working on another of his brilliant plans again.

Marvin:       (on intercom)  Here I am, brain the size of a Galaxy reduced to answering the intercom.  Did I mention my diodes hurt?

Trillian:     Any update on the automated trading system?

Marvin:       Silly me, I understood that you wanted the engines fixed before we crashed into the sun.  I keep forgetting I work for such superior intellects.  Perhaps I should shine your shoes or something in gratitude.

Trillian:     Fix the engines.

Marvin:       I knew you'd say that.

Eddie:        Incoming, transmission, I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I will.

Slartibartfast:  (on Monitor) If you people can spare a moment from crashing into stars, I think you should know great things are afoot.

Zaphod:       I know, I'm on my fourth round right now.  Whee. (passes out)

Slartibartfast: So human, have you decided to donate your brain in the service of the universe yet?

Arthur:       What?

Eddie:        End transmission.  I'm sure that cleared everything up because I know I feel a lot better.  By the way, we'll crash into the sun in T minus ten minutes.  Isn't that exciting?

Edit: For clarification, no insults were personally intended.  I was just trying to keep characters in character.

The site closed down about a week after it got posted on cheapassgamer and one or two other bargain finder websites.


I'm guessing he got hit by a typhoon of shitty games and is now gone for good.

Could be.  As much as I like CheapAssGamer, it's a devourer of souls and could easily slay a small company like SYG.
