Update 2 - Hack A Day Down... Long term.. Let's hope not

Hack A Day was doing some site maintenance.

But now, it seems to have disappeared. For the last 2 days, there has been no DNS IP resolution. The domain still exists, but it is not pointed anywhere.

Will Hack A Day return? I don't know, but I'm really hoping that it returns!

For those who don't know what Hack A Day is, this site showcases hardware and software hacks. Anything that could be old school hacked / tweaked was featured on this site.

Update - 09/10/08

It seems that they are migrating their site to a new host provider. And, they have been plagued with DDOS attacks on their new provider.

More information about the downtime is available here.

Update - 09/12/08

They are back up and running... You can get your hack-a-day fixes now.

How long does it take to recover from a DDOS attack?
