Never let it be said that Boards.ie was ever in a state of non-development. If anything the video is yet another demonstration of the effect you and Ross had on the site. It was like a game of space invaders in there from mid 2009 onwards, Ross was a bit lonely before that

Site didn't just disappear when hacked.

If you check around 21st - 22nd of January 2010 you'll see it in action.

In a nutshell it is a video representation of data from our logs. The logs keep a record of who edited files and when they were edited. So you can see how boards has grown over the last few years
