    Yeah I created a new account as I forgot my old password and the email address was from a isp so no longer around.

    I was hoping they'd bring WP back up now as business hours are over but it doesn't look that way. I lost count of how many times I turned to my browser to visit whirlpool today only to remember it was down.

    In for whinging on behalf of WP members.

    Why isn't there more frequent updates? And why is my illegal downloads not capping my internet? TPG Do something about this crappy speed....

    Haha, its amazing how much a site becomes a daily ritual and how much you realise you use it when its gone....

    Comeback WP!

    Just signed up since WP was down and needed my fix.

    This looks like a pleasant place.

    Looks can be deceiving. You'll be wearing animal skins and swearing at shadows within the hour. :thumbup:

    Heh, another WP refugee here, and I agree with you. It wasn't until this afternoon AEST that I've found out it was a DDOS attack. Hopefully Simon can get it back up and running soon.

    Anyhoo.
    Hi to other desperados. (And there are many, I see.)

    And thanks to OCAU for putting up with a few hundred reffos.

    Still down for me :(

    I don't think I've ever seen so many posts on a page in a single a thread from users with single digit post counts!

    PS: This thread has had nearly 35,000 views! That's got to be close to some kind of record for the age of the thread!

    Watching OCAU online users drop, and WP members online increasing. LOL
