What happened to Gary North's site?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

When I go to the 'Latest articles' section, it gives an error. When I go to the home page, I am redirected to some www.media3.net. What happened? Can somebody help?

I think it's D.O.A. there, Parth...

Did you try reaching GN's site? Does anybody else have the same outcome? Or am I getting this problem only in India?

Try this mirror site. I'm able to get through on it. http://www.y2k-links.com/garynorth/latest.htm

Charlie, the link takes me to yesterday's version of 'Newest articles'. I wish to see today's one.

Sometime between 11am today and now at 5pm somebody obviously got in and redirected the domain address for Gary's site. At 11am the site was functioning and Gary had posted new news links for today.

I can't find my "cheat sheet" with the IP numbers to go directly to the site. I'll keep looking but if anyone else can post the IP, please do.

I wonder if Gary had an idea this might happen? He had posted about having a copy of the IP number handy for circumstances like this.

Well, i have the IP address, but it"s at home. I'll be there in an hour if no one else shows up with it before then

Caller to Michael Medved show on radio today said he had called Gary's web hosting company to ask what had happened to the site.

The woman who spoke with him replied "I'm not allowed to say." and "I'm sorry, but I can't say."

Information will become worth more than Andy's gold and Buffet's Silver.

Does appear to be something going on. Gary seems to be the resourceful type, I expect it to be up again somehow, either later today or tomorrow. We'll see.

If you ever need to find an IP address for someone go to the DOS prompt C:\ Type ping garynorth.com or yourdon.com or whoever and enter. (make sure you are online) The IP address will be shown.

C:\PING garynorth.com
