From what I can gather, the site went down temporarily for reasons that the site administrators will not discuss. It also appears that some key people were out of town when the site went down and are still out of town. Whether or not it will be back up again no one seems to know. It is a very hostile environment right now. This poster has a quote that says the site is dead. 18/12/04
