    I'm sure most of you have noticed since its been up for two days now, but i was surprised no one had started a thread yet about the problems resexcellence is having.

    just check out the site:

    www.resexcellence.com

    ResEx is IMHO the best mac site on the net so its rather upsetting to see something like this happen. i wonder if this is the death of one of the giant mac sites.

    what do you guys think?

    kinda lame joke since we lose the site's content for a day. i mean the nice thing about resex is its updated daily.

    guess we have to wait til tomorrow to find out then.

    there's still a link there to get to the normal page:

    http://www.ResExcellence.com/index_old.shtml

    as mentioned above, this is probably just an april fools' joke. The reasoning seems a little too far-fetched to be credible.

    Jeez, it's so obviously an April Fools' joke... having the index page redirect to another IP? No data has been lost, if you followed those links off of the index_old.shtml...

    You guys have definitely been had. :D

    well yeah probably is a joke, but like it totally sucks because we lose the content of the site. i mean the if its a joke then basically for the sake of a joke they havent updated their site like they do everyday.

    I think this line is the give away:
    I have consulted my attorney, Johnny Cochran, and he informed the ISP, "You gave him the boot, now you must make him root!"

    That and the cheesy mugshots...
    :rolleyes:
