it was off for me for multiple days. being a holiday here, not sure if it was all 4 or not, but it seems like it was at least fri/sat/sun. Maybe location / black hole type problem? Its certainly back now, so whatever. I assumed the owner was adding a shiny or more ads or something.
scary to think, this site could just vanish one day if the owner no longer sees it as profitable, all the threads, posts and peoples time answering and helping to grow the C++ community would be washed away in a flash.
Not only that but many members who have gained friendships or acquaintances on this forum will be at a loss :(
One low traffic consequence of the up-down status here...
even if people can create new accounts or log into existing ones not knowing if the site is gonna go dark permanently or be offline for an extended time is frustrating, encouraging people to go elsewhere.
