I wish I had awesome ideas like making profit by selling items at cost. They make it back on the games they sell for the consoles, uh, bears, right?

The phpBB Team has been so occupied by phpBB 3.0 they haven't been watching the mandatory 2 hours of Walker, Texas Ranger everyday. This made Chuck Norris angry, and he roundhouse kicked all the servers, which not only destroyed the data but paralyzed nearly half the phpBB team in the after shock, making the repairs go very slow.

So simple.

Actually, I think it got locked because it became a battle, rather than a debate
#1 reason: to make money from http://www.phpbb.com/ads/adclick.php?n=afcb2f11 (the main page Advertisement)

Um, they are always on the page. I doubt it will make much, if any, difference to the number of clicks
#2 reason: to force people to load test 3.0

There is no need to stress test it. Firstly, phpBB.com has been down, I think twice, previously, for various reasons, an area51 has been used as backup. If you look, the most users ever here was back in 2005.

Also, the second biggest phpBB forum on the internet, http://www.bokt.nl/, uses phpBB3. I think that a reasonable idea of the load can be got from that. (Note to the uninformed. Those running bokt.nl are knowledgeable enough to fix any problems they encounter on their own, with no help. If you are not, please don't run 3.0.Beta 5 live, because we will won't be able to help you if things do go wrong).
#3 reason: to peak peoples interest on the Bears, so next time they sell them they make mega $$$

Uh, we explained this one before, and, others have also mentioned here. They were previously, and thus I would presume will be in the future, sold at a loss and in limited numbers. They are purely SHS` doing, and just a nice little thing to allow us sad sad people who spend (waste) most of our time here to have a little fun with.

You should know this, you own one. If you don't want him to "accidentally" fall on your face during the night, I'd keep on his good side. ;)

I must admit that I based this thread off of yours, but please read the first post. This isn't intended to turn into an argument, but instead to provide a little bit of humor in the meantime.

Bill Gates and Microsoft want to develop a discussion / bulletin board system. They have decided to sabotage all competition that cost less than $2000 a month.

That'll backfire when they release a Total Cost of Ownership study "proving" that phpBB costs more ;)

Obviously, I hit a nerve. I just got a knock at my front door from two guys in dark suits and dark glasses. They gave me cease and desist order from legal counsel of Microsoft. Man those guys are fast. I am starting to wonder if they have bugged my computer. Maybe they are all out to get me.
