    Hacked, did it? Is that what happened about a month or two back (maybe longer) when I tried to access the site?

    -Edit-

    Aw, damn. I lost my custom avatar and title. Furthermore, I can't seem to get to my profile page to change anything.

    The better question is why do you still have a C2Q?

    Surely there must be a backup before the hack and there must also be a way to merge recent posts with the backup?

    I can't see my previous posts, pity.

    Anyway I really miss the activity before. This was a sensational underground mine of information with brilliant posts. We had top journalists from places like Anandtech referencing it and posting here. Debates were exciting and passionate. Moderators were both brilliant and helpful. XS was the forerunner of everything overclocking, I would look forward to the site, it was a wonderful solace when I was experiencing personal trouble.

    I really hope that this site is revived and everyone comes back.

    This site got me to overclock and WC my Socket A and Abit MB.

    Damn I miss the XS site, I really do.
