Unhappy Where is Wolvix.org ??



What has happened to wolvix ?

Posting here because not sure where to post and I am very newbie.
heh: fresh and still smelling clean : not like raddled oldtimers.
Couldn't write a .script to save my granny
Will need lots of aid in times to come if I may.

The wolvix site: wolvix.org seems to have been down for some time.
??
Anyone have any info ?
This has been one of my fave trial distros: very useable
Xfce and Slack = mean and lean.

I would be sad to hear this operation has folded.
I recall reading somewhere about some xollaboration btwn Ultima & Wolvix.

Mushroom here.

Site down due to ISP network changes.

... so you were warned - sort of.

Wolvix GNU/Linux is a LiveCD distribution primarily intended for desktop use. Since February 2007, Wolvix and Ultima Linux have been working on a top-secret plan for world domination joining forces to help develop the best desktop Linux distribution(s) available; however, that just means we've been stealing (with permission of course) each others' code and attempting to create a single unified Wolvix/Ultima codebase, there isn't going to be a complete project merge or anything like that.

Guys, this was 16 months ago!!

The site went down on Saturday, the day after Wolven left for a weeks well-earned R&R in Fjordland. As wolven hosts the wolvix site at home, I'm guessing his ISP is giving him problems. He'll be back in a couple of days and the site will be back up.

I'm so glad I found this thread. I almost thought my beloved Wolvix was now the last of it's breed.
