Maybe it's a countdown until they announce that Bertie got killed?

Don't get your hopes up. I'm sure the DEV team has had enough on their hands trying to repair the server. I would think that phpBB3 would have been second to that and put on the back burner till the server was up and running again.

Just my two cents worth. Hopefully I am wrong.

Well someone is making us have a guess as I see this in the page source
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>phpBB &bull; Countdown to WHAT?</title>
</head>


My guess is that it is until they announce that the attempted recovery has failed and we all have to register again.
All postcounts will start at zero. :(

Damn - never thought about that...

I was just thinking it was a conspiracy, and that there was no problems at all - and that they were just porting everything over to 3!

EDIT: I meant phpBB.com using RC1 as discussed in another thread here, not the full release. :P

It has suddenly gone very quiet on here. Not the usual post rate in the support forum or on here. I guess that everyone is over at what is left of phpbb.com watching the countdown to see what happens.

Not a bad idea I think I will go make a cup of tea and join them. :lol:
