Here's the official word from Amiga's Gary Peake on why their server was down over the weekend: The system needed rebooting, the server alarm failed to go off, I had been in an accident and was offline and no phone for about three days and I am who they would have called. This was posted in comp.sys.amiga.misc.

|Sorry, bad guess. Hardware problem with the host ISP.

|All is well with me now, I have a new phone number, we now have backup

But why would they call anyone, Someone should have called THEM. It wasn't your
inaction which caused the problem, it is an isp problem. It doesn't take a computer nerd
to be able to type in reboot, or click on a reboot button.depending on flavor of linux
they are running
Gary hope you are well.
