    Was doom9 forced to shut down? They've been down for ten and a half hours.

    "Down For Everyone or Just Me" says forum.doom9.org is down.

    But fear not, that's normal

  6. Is Doom9 built on Wordpress? The Wordpress ping-back feature is being abused again.

    I thought the Doom9 site ceased operation years ago . . . .

    Show you how in touch with certain developments I am.

  8. There's still some software which has it's home at doom9. ie that's where the bug reports/support threads for said software reside. Some of those threads are still quite active. I post in a couple of them regularly myself. The rest of doom9 seems pretty quiet though.

    Yes, they are back.

    BUT they never should have gone away, to begin with

    Minus the '9', perhaps ? DOOM was one of the original FPS (first person shooter) games, possibly going back as far as the '186-based IBM PC ? Or maybe more like the '386 time ? Anyway, graphics were rather primitive back then. They probably improved these, at some point. Anyway, I think they may even have made a cheesy sci-fi movie out of it . . . starring The Rock, or someone like that ?

  18. Code:
    $ telnet forum.doom9.org 80
    Trying 213.112.23.103...
    telnet: connect to address 213.112.23.103: No route to host
    Their web server is down. The server itself is up and running (can be pinged).

    No idea what's going on. Most likely a hardware failure of some kind.

    I thought that only a small subset of what Doom9 used to be had survived into recent years ?
