Does anybody know what happened to it??

It's been a while seen i last visited it and it seems to be down...

Is this something temporary or is it oficially dead?



Thanks

Looks like a nice page ... it works also here. What you could do is to check if you can reach the page using a service like anonymizer.

Nah, most are in just tar.gz or tgz format which can usually be used on any Linux system with gcc installed.. etc.

If any of you are using Galeon, this is one of the slots at the top of browser for searching if you didn't know. Along with FM and RPMFind and Google.

Just thought I'd throw that in there since some people didn't even know about the site before

Cool

What happens if you use the IP address in the browser ? Clearly it doesn't look like your internet connection since you can traceroute to the site with no problems. Strange indeed..

Drew is looking out for your internet provider since he knows what will happen when you call em (cause he works for one )

Although I agree, it doesn't look like it'd be a problem with your internet exactly, but rather a browser...

Try lynx or links and see if they work, just as an idea.

Cool

I too, work on an isp, so i'm also fearing that same thing...

But they've been good to me before and this time again (i've already called them)

It won't work with links, lynx, galeon, konqueror, mozilla, dillo, netscape, nor ie...so it most surely isn't a browser thing...
It won't work neither with IP so dns prob is less probable...

I'm sure it must be some routing problem with my isp's gateway. Besides, when i talked to them they told they also failed to see the page.( Obviously they first said there was no problem because they did a traceroute and got there....so i had to explain the whole deal, including you people as my witnesses of the working page )

They gave a claim number and said it would be solved in 48 hs....
I'll just have to wait and see what happens..

Actually I don't any longer. Started this past week at www.digitalmotorworks.com . Going to be doing support doing troubleshooting/querying on database files for their clients. Pay is a little better, I just had to get away from the phone queue that was happening at my last job with whiny people who just complained all the time. But I am still looking out for more of an IT type job though.. Maybe one day I'll go take my Solaris tests.. followed by my Linux certs I plan to take as well.

Actually the one thing holding me back is lack of money... not really time. And yeah, I haven't wasted anytime or money taking any MS test to this day or A+. Everyone always asks if I have mine, I tell them happily nope.
