Does anyone know what's going on with Crux?


I always update Crux on Mondays but this morning I found the crux.nu site down, couldn't ping it or browse to it. I know that kind of thing happens from time to time, but it's still down now five hours later. I wonder what's going on.

The Crux website appears to be working now.

They've definitely got problems. It's now officially down for maintenance since yesterday. I hope they haven't been hacked.

Just checked. Their server is fubar. They're currently working on transferring everything to a new machine.

Just got another comment: "ancient hardware". Apparently they've been thinking of moving for some time but this has forced their hand.
