I don't know how many of you ever hit this site. Good alternative to AT.net.

Something looks weird there. Go directly to the site and you get a "Can't find the site" error.

Google it and you get a bunch of sites showing some site data, the address for sale and I hit one last night showing it had been down for three days.

Just curious. It's good site with some good information.

My professional opinion.... the web server is having problems. Nothing on that box is responding to http requests.

That's what I kind of thought. Just curious what has happened. Oh well, I'll check periodically to see if they come back on line.

Thanks Tim.

Used to go there...a decent site, but most of the useful info there is behind a paid membership which is hard to justify if you're not in the UK.

I paid one time a couple of years ago and had recently gotten back on there and they were having free renewal.

They do have some great benefits if you're in the UK.

Found out that they have been a victim of a ransonware hack.

The bastards encrypted the entire site.

Message here on Oct. 2 says they are working to rebuild. Wonder if it will happen.

Turns out the backups aren't allowing them to rebuild the site either.... So not looking good !

Well that sucks.

I really wish these damn hackers would us their skills for good and not for evil.
