Distrowatch down?
« on: July 06, 2014, 11:21:21 pm »
Distrowatch.com appears to be down? I got a main page from another google link but the links on it were 404...anyone else getting a host page?

edit..looks like the Distrowatch.org site is still working

DistroWatch went down because of an issue with its domain register. This would not be the first, nor last, time an important site went down because of a such a problem. The website's last update, a listing for the new version of Scientific Linux, was posted on July 4.
