    It's temporary. Don't worry.

    Google cache should work too.

    Good luck!

    EDIT: google cache doesnt work…

    I wanted to look something up and I noticed that it was down. As much traffic as they get, I'm surprised that they aren't down more often.

    They are recovering from a power outage (giant fuse explodiated, not a UPS issue) at their colo in Florida where all the main swervers live. Recovery is already happening, but they lave lots of machines to sync back up before they are fully up again.

    The site is back up, but expect it to struggle for a while until the squid swervers are pumped up.

    There's still some problems, but it's there. Maybe I can get my assignments done by the midnight deadline.

    You know Wiki isn't reliable source for info. Matter of fact, I will prove it. I am going to look up Toyota and then edit all the things so it will say, " Toyota is the evil empire! They brainwash millions of Americans into thinking hybrids are the solution to everything!" :eek: :p I really won't do that, but I could if I wanted to.

    Do that. Really, I'm serious; then see how long it's there before someone restores it back to normal.
    I think you'd be surprised.

    Exactly. Especially on something like Toyota.

    Are their sources unreliable? Hmmm.....better investigate to see whether that's true or not.

    *checks Wiki*

    Ditto. Most are very dodgy indeed.
