View Full Version : B5ers what did you do without AZ?

09-14-2006, 07:43 PM
Just wondering what you guys were up to the past few days.

I pretty much checked AZ every hour or so and checked out other forums that I haven't posted on much recently.

Everything is still so messed up[confused] Old threads are back up, and all the threads and infomation from the last 3-5 months have been erased. Even PM's are gone[confused] Damn, somebody really F'd sh!t up.

Edit: this just keeps getting strange, signature pics are backup. I'm not sure if this is good or bad j/k[:p]

09-14-2006, 08:14 PM

09-15-2006, 03:26 AM
Update (http://www.audizine.com/forum/announcement.php?s=&forumid=39)

09-15-2006, 04:09 AM
audiforums vwvortex 2 other forums I post on definetly not as good as AZ gald to see it up and running [az] [:D]

o yes and of course got caught up on some work I have been meaning to do damm AZ takes up a lot of time so addictive haha

09-15-2006, 04:48 AM
i had a hard time selling my stuff. haha. I would click on my favorites and go to audizine but it would never work. I think hope kept me going

09-15-2006, 04:52 AM
I actually got a ton of work done - go figure

what a mess though - guess we'll have to debate Unitronics software all over again.

<edit> btw, who ever was buying stuff from me and sent me PM's the day AZ went down, I didn't get any of them. There were a few ppl interested in the exhaust tips, turbo inlet pipe, oem IC tubing, etc. Hit me up if you are still interested.

09-15-2006, 04:54 AM
just an update for all....i'll be going pc16 in about a week =). I think it shipped out today along with my racetech fmic. I might head to AWE to pick up a borla exhaust today.

09-15-2006, 04:57 AM
yea man, i ws bummed when audizine was down...[:(]

09-15-2006, 05:04 AM
jeez... how was I supposed to get through my work day without more internet site to go to? Good thing for me, I have many backups (non auto related) to help me pass the time

09-15-2006, 05:16 AM
it has been the most productive days at work in a long time

09-15-2006, 05:33 AM

09-15-2006, 05:34 AM

some sort of attack. someone posted a link to the story up above.

looks like information from the past few months have been lost. I'm trying to sit here and think of all the stuff we'll have to cover again.

09-15-2006, 06:03 AM
i lost all of mine and had to re-register. i had 435 posts...

09-15-2006, 06:06 AM

09-15-2006, 06:11 AM
Hmm...I wonder...

Lost 50+ post count.

At least my sig pic is back.

09-15-2006, 06:17 AM
Even though I knew AZ was down I basically sat at the computer and every 5 min. I would hit refresh. It's kinda sad.

09-15-2006, 06:19 AM
i never realized how much i came on here, then i couldnt get on and i was like wtf?

09-15-2006, 06:21 AM
i really missed az. as much as i like other forums and post there and despite the lack of new threads and posts on az recently, i'm so glad it's back!!!!

oh, and i'm back to my old username, and lost about 300-400 posts doh!

09-15-2006, 06:24 AM
i was on audiforums.com

09-15-2006, 06:26 AM
damn i thought site like this kept backups of the server every lets say month or something.

looks like we will have to have mike and gavin go at it again so its on record. hahaha jk

09-15-2006, 08:09 AM
At least we got sigs back!

09-15-2006, 08:48 AM
^ not for very long from what EVIL was saying.

09-15-2006, 08:50 AM
man i was going crazy at work. i had to actually work. man they dont pay me enough with out AZ to read all day.

09-15-2006, 08:52 AM
Yeah the sigs won't last.

09-15-2006, 09:37 AM
I went to dubberzine / vortex while it was down, but it's not the same. I lost about 600 posts and pretty much every post I had about my BT install / problems / questions. Boo.

09-15-2006, 09:41 AM
Don't get to hyped up about the sig pics guys. You know they gonna be gonna in a couple of days when the forum settings get back to normal.

09-15-2006, 10:41 AM
i tried going on other sites like audiforums.com, audiworld.com, but i felt lost[:(]

09-15-2006, 11:19 AM
all round bummer......

at least its back

09-15-2006, 11:23 AM
shite...i just noticed i lost like 600 posts. i was just over 2000 posts.......damn haters attacking AZ.

09-15-2006, 11:34 AM
I didnt know what to do with myself, I kept clicking on the zine every 5 mins to check.

09-15-2006, 11:44 AM
it was pretty depressing.. not to mention my own internet doesn't work

09-15-2006, 11:50 AM
I went from about 300 to 38, and I also dropped down to 2 rings, but I do like the fact that we got our sig pictures back.

09-15-2006, 11:52 AM
The first day I was okay, although I could feel myself losing strength. When I got back to my room at the end of the first day, I tried to get to AZ to revitalize myself...but it wasn't up, and the shock and disappointment coupled with forced withdrawal weakened me too much to even get up out of my chair. I just sat here, dazed, overnight, hand on mouse, clicking 'refresh' until it came back online.

09-15-2006, 12:09 PM
I was on other forums and actually went to bed pretty early the past few days.

09-15-2006, 12:49 PM
Bummer we lost some good writeups and info. I kicked ass this week at work though.

09-15-2006, 12:50 PM
Weird my Gallery is completely empty..

09-15-2006, 01:24 PM
i lost my entire account and had to reregister. bummer..... oh well im back now. too bad they had to lose a lot of info tho

09-15-2006, 01:50 PM
i dont understand why we cant keep sigs, thats the only way i recognize people, not by user names but by car and sig.... i would rather lose the worthless sections like off topic discussions

09-15-2006, 02:10 PM
Yep,a lot of good info gone...There was a nice write up about the installation of a boost gauge,but now it's gone..

09-15-2006, 02:13 PM
....i've been pretty bored but i went out to a job interview today, zine came back up lets just hope i get the job. now that would top it off

09-15-2006, 02:17 PM
anyone know if they can get the info back?

09-15-2006, 02:31 PM
I lost sooooo many bookmarked threads and important PMs.... but I was much more productive at work. Not sure it's a tradeoff I would make again!

09-15-2006, 02:32 PM
oh and I have lost all my posts

09-15-2006, 03:38 PM
this sucks, i lost everything, i had to register again, i had bought a manifold from one of the members and now i cant get in contact with him, he has not send it yet, i need him!!!!! i believe was blacka4onepoint8t or something like that.

09-15-2006, 11:59 PM

09-16-2006, 12:14 AM

09-16-2006, 05:48 AM
Look on the bright side, Evil Audi can't tell you to use the search, because half of the info is gone. But I'm sure he'll find other ways to torment us ..... [:D]

this is what I'm wondering. I don't care about my post count. I'm just really bummed that all the content is gone.

09-16-2006, 09:13 AM
i was kinda bummed when the site was down...but i seriously didnt even go to any other forumn because this one is that badass =)

09-16-2006, 10:40 AM
