Cirque du Freak is an Adventure | Fantasy movie and was released in October 2009. It starts when Darren broke the truce of the two warring clusters. It is when he and his best friend part ways to attain their different goals and take sides with the opposing groups. This is a not so good movie but somehow divides and shows two different sides of vampires. I'll have a 3/10 rating for this movie.

Is Urobux New?

It has been a couple of days after that I noticed something familiar about this new PTC site. I saw this site in an ad from another PTC site I was attending to. There was nothing unusual with this new PTC site so I just waited for the credit of my click and did not mind what the ad had contained.

However, my attention was caught when the site's index page had nice slide feature of their menu, and the Euro unit found in the upper-left corner of every page, which may indicate this PTC site's name (without the 'E').

I got curious and browsed the site. I found out that this new PTC site looked somewhat similar with a previous PTC site. So, I did some further browsing and I found out some facts.

Although, I will not mention the name of that closed PTC site, it was a good PTC site BTW, and was one of the trusted PTC site in that time. However, some unexpected incidents happened and the admin and the staff were unable to resolve it. And, what's another sign of that previous PTC site's goodness, is that they paid all members in their investments in the site.

Some similarities of Urobux with the previous PTC site mentioned:
  • the button-like links in the title bar (containing Home, FAQ, etc.), together with contents and its arrangements
  • the fade-in style of the list of browsers that can be used for better viewing, together with the browsers mentioned and the arrangements, but the DDos and encryption icons are new
  • the log-in section in the index page
  • the slide-in and slide-out effects in viewing the FAQ
  • how the forum was divided and managed, and the highlighting of the title, together with the blue folder icon used
  • the View Advertisements, Log-in and Register pages

The found facts:
  • Urobux and the previous PTC site were using the same script (probably the main reason)
  • Admin lived in Spain and is a Muslim (which is not what the previous PTC site's admin is)
  • Admin is very active, and is looking all over the forums (when the forum would be larger, he'd have mods)
  • Admin had only posted in the Indonesian and Filipino threads (doesn't mean he's only friends with them.. lol)
