What happened to linux.org?

Oct 28, 1998, 15:08 (12 Talkback[s])

By Dave Whitinger of Linux Today

For the past several days, we have attempted to load www.linux.org only to be notified that the DNS entry does not exist.

Upon contacting the administrators of Linux Online, we learn that they have been cut off from their up-stream ISP after their contract with them expired.

According to Linux Online, they are now in the process of moving their net connection to a new T1, which should be up "in 2 or 3 days".

They are currently working to set up a temporary DNS server to allow the domain name to resolve.

Upon offering our assistance in any matters required, Linux Online's response was that they have everything under control, and will be back on-line as soon as they get the net connection moved.
