Prompt work by Merk, he's a great guy!

He only had to switch it off and on again.

Has the forum server been hiding under the stairs from all the thunderstorms today...?

According to the Twitter feed the domain ran out. Money had been taken for the renewal but it didn't renew for some reason.

I thought the 12th had rolled round a bit quickly. Either that or Associated Newspapers had paid for a DDOS attack.

By the way why do there seem to be 2 Mailwatch Twitter feeds, one of which is retweeting shite from the likes of Paul Joseph Watson?

We contacted the owner/admin and he sorted it. Problem was with the provider.

Weird. I had no problem accessing the site yesterday, but no one seemed to post anything all day. That would explain it if no one else could actually see the site...

'Fraid so. It was occasionally visible, but I expect the domain name was getting purged from DN servers through the day...

WTF? posted at 3pm yesterday. I wonder if it depended on when IP's name servers were updated.

Completely down all day for me. I just assumed Merk was trying to suppress the release of the Mailwatch salary leak.

Weird thing, it works on Internet Exploder but not on my usual browser (Chrome)

I've cleared cache, flushed DNS and flushed DNS in the browser. Must be my companies DNS but if it is why does IE work?

Bloody computers.

Always on the 12th.
Contacted Merk and he sorted it.

Thanks, Merk.
