Usenet down. Temporary or Permenant?
« on: October 27, 2008, 04:17:12 AM »
rec.games.roguelike.* have been inactive for a few days. Lots of ISP's are pulling the plug. What can we do to maintain the open communication lines & archives of information?

Glad Rogue Temple and Roguebasin exist. It will give a point of recovery and a place to start rebuliding Rome.

I hope some of the servers survive, but we won't know until the smoke clears.

I tried GG yesterday with no luck posting there in r.g.r.angband.

Has it worked for you in the last two days or so?

No, it says successful post, but no post comes up.

I can't see my posts either. Google Groups has had some problems so this is probably one of them.

Edit: They have appeared now there.
