    What with the power outage on the host server over the weekend, many of us have been deprived of our regular TF fix (Or "Energony goodness", if you will...) and, purely out of idle curiosity/boredom, I'm wondering how many of you coped with the free time.

    Myself, I've been in a rut and was asked to leave the flat I was staying in so I've spent the last two days moving stuff back into my folks (Not a pleasant experience!) and still have more stuff to move.

    Anyone else get up to anything interesting?

    I spent some time At Joe Battlelines, you tube and Wiki.


    Did you know that Super Mario Brothers 2 game was released originally under a different Title, with different characters in Japan.
    Neither did I until TFW went south...

    I have to say that I didn't even wander to a different transformers fan site until this morning as I figured that seibertron may know what is up with tfw. Yeah, I am loyal like a dog. :lol

    I found my old NES and Gameboy and cleaned them up. Then got a 72-pin connector on ebay, which I still haven't received yet. Once I get it, I will replace it with the shit one in my NES and then I will enjoy all the 8-bit goodness.

    Reliving the good old days of Pokemon Gold (which I recently replaced the battery in) on the Game Boy. Best Pokemon ever.

    I honestly had no idea the site was down until Colin IM'd me and told me to spread the word of the downtime. And thus I did!

    I had plenty of other stuff going on so that I wasn't that affected. Until at work today, then I started getting withdrawal symptoms...no TFW2005 to goof off to while at my desk, pretending to work :p  :lol

    PISSED!!!!!!! I was shaking in the corner. I never realized how valuable this site was to me. I tried other sites. They just do'nt work. I'm going to be an official supporter soon as this new job comes around. Thanks TFW2005 for being the best!!!

    Checked the site a few times and then PM'd Boardwise on 360 and he let me know about the site being down. I built my lego train set and proudly displayed it on the dining room floor much to my finacee's shagrin.

    Hope TFW is getting a refund or something. I recently toured our companies multi-million dollar data center and everything is x2. One side is completely shielded from the other and is an exact replica of the other. Hopefully this incident will get them (server farm) in shape to get their gear or infrastructure updated...

    Anyways, glad to see it back on line and really enjoyed the TFW Lite on www.tfw2005.net

    I went through my shit to find stuff to sell, but I didn't list it until the site was back because my master list is here.

    Other than that minor setback, I too went on as usual.

    I even made plans to spend tomorrow afternoon watching TF2 filming. With females.

    I found that AIM and MSN were much busier than usual during the outage and chatted with some TFW people I haven't talked to in ages! :)

    I was wondering about this. I spent virtually no time on the internet, and found myself not even wanting to go to other transformer forums. I did a bunch more things around the house that needed doing.

    Watched dvd's I hadn't watched in a while (Alien series). Signed up for Zune Pass and downloaded a ton of music to my player. I also cleaned the apartment more than I usualy would.
