    Believe it or not, linux.org seems to be back up and running! Go figure!

    Glad to see we haven't lost all the postings and articles!

    Just one thing to be aware of though: As of November 5, 2016 @ 3:15 PM, HTTPS (which protects your privacy) is not yet working on linux.org. Just thought I'd point that out.

    Yup! I wish the owners cared more about the site! Hopefully not down too long. I may offer my services.

    Looks the same as when it last crashed. No explanations yet.

    Thanks! I usually check it first thing in the morning, but busy today. Will post a message to the alleged Sys Admin about the repeated failure of the site. I want to see this fixed once an for all!!!

    Good luck! I kinda think they are due for a major overhaul (or sale) at this point. Things have become quite out of date with all the failures over this year.

    I can only detect that they are using Apache server, but not the Distro of Linux.

    Here we go again!

    I would love to have a talk with the owners but my attempts to talk with the Domain rep listed in the Whois record has not responded. If anyone can pass pass my name on to anyone at the owners, I would like to find out why this site keeps going down and what it would take to keep it up!

    They can't be possibly be running on an MS SQL system! ;^)
