    For the past several hours, macupdate's site has been apparently down. Can anyone else confirm this? I can not even connect to their server!

    Seems to be having serious problems and is stil not up. I know there is still versiontracker but I prefer Macupdate and feel like I'm supporting the Mac platform by going there. First Macrumors, now Macupdate...I smell a conspiracy afoot!! :eek: :p

    I just think that it's one of those computer glitches. There have been a lot of updates lately. Just like MacRumors when capacity is reached some problems occur.

    Apparently they had a hard drive crash. That's a horrible thing to go through! I hope they're back online soon. I like MacUpdate better than VT too--something about supporting the little guy, I guess :)

    It's back up now but seems to be having problems displaying user comments. Glad to see macupdate back and hope they get all issues ironed out soon.

    Yep, seem here. Mostly a blank screen.
    If you reset Safari you enter Macupdate.com but 2-3 clicks and you get a blank screen again.

    Last couple of days there have many issues.

    I've not noticed any outage, though I don't access the site very much. I just checked myself and it came right up.

    I get macupdate.com to load, but not www.macupdate.com. They both resolve to the same IP, so I'm guessing it is a misconfiguration on their web server(s).
