More than depletion of natural resources, I fear a "relapse in civilization", don't ask me what I know, what I expect, how or when.. I don't know much.. Yet is is my worst fear.. Because of what it will cost in the number of human lives and what it will bring out of humanity, its best and its worst too unfortunately..

Climate change or "natural" disaster whether you attribute it to human intervention in the environment, mother earth or the Creator.. It seems to me to be close, around the corner..

I'm pretty sure you can find  some Arabic videos with English subtitles about your relapse theory.
In the meantime, I hope you watched this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGt4XwBbCvA
What humbert doesn't say about Venezuela is that most of its oil resources are heavy oil, and it's not as profitable as Saudi Arabia's oil.

Venezuela's Oil Reserves Are Probably Vastly Overstated

Nah, unfortunately, the only thing close that I might find on the subject is minor & major "Signs of the Hour".. Nothing specific on what I'm talking about..

Note that I sent a message to Maher asking "are you still alive? If you are dead, a reply would nonetheless be useful"

I guess that humbert has no news of the administrator of the forum either. In one month, I will call the town hall of his residence to know if he's not in the obituaries. I will keep you posted.

I assume you're talking about Maher. I haven't heard from him in a while either. Still, somebody is paying for hosting the web site and I can only assume it's him.

Sometimes i'm thinking that the site is down. For me, it's like a 1 in 5 chance that i actually manage to enter the forum when i type in the link. Often it loads for 20+ seconds.

Well, I deleted an old topic of mine too, but I put the message again here. Despite 999 views, nobody answered.
In the meantime, maybe you can try to solve this little riddle.

Imagine that the forum is a maze, there are one thousand doors, and one thousand slaves on the forum. The doors are numbered from 1 to 1000. Since too many users want to register to the forum, Maher ,the master of the game, has to make sure that as few doors as possible stay open, while a few doors must be left open for the nice users.
Maher asks the first slave to open every door. Then, he has the second slave close every second door. The third slave goes to every third door and if it is closed, he has to open it, and if it is open, he has to close it. The fourth slave of the forum does this to every fourth door, and so on. After the operation is completed with the thousandth slave, how many doors are open?

25?
29?
31?
99?
125?

You can log on to the forum and tell us if you found the answer.

Thanks to scarface & everyone else for their efforts in maintaining the forum, it's truly appreciated.
We all miss Maher & Ahmed & all the ones absent for a long time now.
We wish to hear from you guys that you are all ok.

Note that a mini offline version of the forum is going to be available (zipped, only 1.43Gb)

In case some image hosting sites are down or if there is no more internet in the world, at least you'll have a copy of the forum. If there is no more electricity, it won't work though. Note that I didn't only delete images, I updated some old messages of Ahmad, Fuj, iih, shadow.97, Daniil and a few other users...that had lost their pictures in their messages. At least if I had a copy of these pictures. Some pictures on imageshack or postimage were certainly deleted several years ago. They should feel lucky.

Note that I was thinking that further cleanup might be necessary, with my own messages for example.
by way of illustration in the game topic, let's take the message about the repack of Quantum Break. Well, unlike the other repacks that are normally quite reliable, this repack doesn't work very well, and 2 times out of 3 the installer is crashing. What's more I didn't find any bink 2 encoder that could be used to further reduce videos. And yet with a size of 23 Gb, it was a "small" repack.
Actually, the first few minutes of the game are rather interesting, when Jack is meeting Paul Serene at Riverport (then the time travel experiment goes wrong). Then the game is a bit more boring.
In fact, I think that only the beginning and the end of the game should be kept. But I don't have the skills for such modifications. And with a size of 66Gb, this game is a kind of burden for a hdd. Therefore If this message is not essential I'll delete it too.
In the clip topic, some messages are outdated too, and some contain broken links. You can send me pms if some messages seem useless.

Thanks to scraface.
Some user should have the complete copy of forum. In case wo lost or something happened bad, this vesion may help to make forum online again.
Many users including Administrator already not available on the forum.

There is none worthy of worship except ALLAH,
Muhammad (PBUH) is the Messenger of ALLAH.
