<PoopsyMuf> F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5F5

<JackSawyr> :P
<PoopsyMuf> I'm refreshing at the speed of light

<JackSawyr> yewah
<Fenrus_ox> yes
<Blackthor> Oh, they did it.
<JackSawyr> and they shut down the forums briefly

<Fenrus_ox> site is not fully up yet
<JackSawyr> so relax

<PoopsyMuf> f5 f5 f5 f5 f5 f5 f5 f5 f5 f5 f5 f5 f5 f5
<mrmurphy> They did what, BT?
<oughtobe> where do you click?
<Blackthor> They changed the site.
<User60> I can see the head.
<PoopsyMuf> click the f5 button
<RC-Cola> oughtobe: it's in the corner
<Fenrus_ox> We will tell you when you are older
<PoopsyMuf> oh shit it's coming feet first
<November> Oh, thanks, Sierra.
<Relight> the splash page is gorgeous
<oughtobe> go to that
<oughtobe> and you can hear some cool music
<tunatowni> if we f5 like crazy wont we kill the bandwitdth
<tunatowni> before we can even download it?
<Twolfe> nah
<PoopsyMuf> no, f5 only makes things quicker
<oughtobe> thats all i got so far
<RC-Cola> iz dat sum..
<PoopsyMuf> QUICKER
<Rocier> ...
<bonertown> i can tastes it
<oughtobe> a new splash screen
<hypn> tunatowni: there are about 20 different mirrors, for the download ;)
<Twolfe> agdi has a microsoft vista server
<Fenrus_ox> dowloads are probably on remote mirrors anyway
<oughtobe> and that new music
<Twolfe> so it will be fine
<Kloreep> F5 shouldn't pull much bandwidth if there's nothing new
<RC-Cola> oh lawd, iz dat sum saurus-on-a-stick??
<Gurok> SHIFT+F5 does. SHIFT+F5!
<mrmurphy> A microsoft vista server doesn't need you to spam it to crash it.
<Relight> It won't take any bandwidth from the downloads because the downloads are all on mirrors.
<tunatowni> what?!?!
<tunatowni> dont tell me agdi is on vista
<tunatowni> i thot sane people used linux or atleast 2003
<PoopsyMuf> guys, if you press alt-f4 you'll automatically start downloading it!
<Rocier> This page has nothing on it!
<Twolfe> duh
<darthcirc> vista server is way faster
<Gurok> LOL if they list Vista as a minimum requirement.
<tunatowni> alt-f4? no its contrl-alt-delete
<darthcirc> server is very stripped down
<Kloreep> Hey, I can see the credits now!
<tunatowni> no no wait its actually the power button on the computer right?
<Relight> ooh copyright info appeared!
<oughtobe> did you find the download?
<Gurok> CTRL+ALT+DEL hasn't worked since DOS.
<Sierra-X> (that's ctrl-alt-backspace for you linuxers)
<RC-Cola> we get to watch the website being built
<hypn> have to leave for work in 20 mins :|
<Twolfe> ctrl alt back just resets x
<Gurok> Call in sick.
<Twolfe> so no
<tunatowni> ctrl alt del worked in win95 and 98 if you pressed it twice
<Arganite> new website!
<PoopsyMuf> oh boy oh boy
<Blackthor> Well, time for bed for me.
<Gurok> Who's going to press it twice?
<Rocier> Did they just put this empty site up to say they "met the deadline?"
<Arganite> shit shit, almost here!

There are still a few diehard chatters as of this writing, but it's certainly saner than it was during the downloading.

And I still havent sat down to play the game yet. I'm still savoring the experience. You can't rush these things. There won't be another QFG-like game for awhile yet, after all :D
