Stop whining. The forum will be back up once every single security precaution is completed and put in place. It's not just a matter of closing a single loophole that was exploited in the hack... a lot of steps are being taken to bolster things up, and they take time when dealing with a network security team, external companies, and government authorities.
As for the driver release date, that's always in flux. There is no such thing as a release guaranteed for a particular day. If you find problems or hit problems, the date slips. Period. Manuel is doing his best by just relaying what he is told. He's not lying or trying to fool anyone. At a certain point, if you're trying to help someone and you relay a couple dates that get missed, then they start complaining. So why would you continue to relay dates if they can't tolerate the results of real world development? You're better off just leaving them in the dark so that they won't accuse you of having broken a promise.
With all the whining and accusations, I'm surprised people don't see why this isn't a great place to have to announce a delay.
