Whats up with www.gnu.org ...?


Anyone else having problems connecting to gnu.org? I've been unable to get there since yesterday. Both their website and FTP site are down...

I need them backup because I need to get some software from them...

Anyone know what is going on?

Moved to General. Even though the Gnu website is a Linux one, we cannot control it's uptime and we can't solve any problems they have unless they ask for help.
