Is SlackBuilds.org down?


What is the status of SlackBuilds.org? I've been trying to access it since this morning unsuccessfully.

https://isitup.org/slackbuilds.org

According to the above link it is down for more than just myself.

OK thanks for the heads up. I wasn't aware of this fact. I haven't been on Facebook for some months.

Yes, it is down.

The Onyxlight datacenter is in Orlando, Florida (USA), which was affected by Hurricane Irma. None of the staff there are currently reachable, but last we heard, they and the DC are okay and have emergency power available. Most likely their uplinks to the net are down.

Sorry; we should have posted some sort of status update here and/or on the mail list already. I guess we assumed that it would somehow be obvious to everyone else that Irma was to blame, but in hindsight, I don't know how everyone else could know that :-)

I'm sure we can forgive the assumption considering the circumstances! :-D

As someone who is in Orlando, Irma was a bitch and blessing. Power was out 24 hours, just got it back, internet/cable was out 48 hours, just got that back, the blessing was it could have been much worse. We had winds 110 mph between 1a-3a Mon. 11Sept. Look up hurricane Donna, Irma occurred on the 57th anniversary and went on an eerily similar path.

Thoughts and condolences to everyone affected by Irma. Hopefully the site will be back up soon and I hope everyone is safe.

It seems to be faster than before.

Could the Keynesians be right? Nah.
