I have been having some problems with timeouts on that site and now I can't hit it at all. I usually keep both of these sites up in tabs at all times.

Never mind, after an hour of no luck it seems to be back.

Was down for me ten minutes ago too...

It's back up now. Probably too much traffic or maintenance issues. Who knows? It's been doing this more lately, but maybe Don is doing some work on the site.

The PM site is running on a Linux server - confiker is a Windows problem.

I see MS has offered a $250,000 bounty for the creator.Bill Gates is a p----,$1,000,000 for the creator's head on a pike would make more of an impression.

Might be better to put that money into porting Windows to Unix.

Hell Freezing Over comes to mind :)

By the way, Unix and Linux are not immune to viruses. There have been several OSX viruses, but obviously vastly fewer due to the market share: OSX has about 8% market share of consumer PC's, and only the most dedicated virus writers would spend time writing a viruses for such a small market segment.

But they do exist, in fact OSX is having their own Trojan worm issue right now:

Trojan virus spreads to as many as 20000 Macs (http://www.boygeniusreport.com/2009/01/23/trojan-virus-spreads-to-as-many-as-20000-macs/)

Of course - being an unpopular target for viruses is not the same as being immune. But Unixes have done a better job of separating applications from the OS whereas in Windows the line is murky. It is the application layer that is the major problem in Windows, in fact. If they were capable of running directly in Unix, God forbid, then Unix too would be a sitting duck. That is the case, for example, with MS Office for Mac. There's nothing I'd rather not run on my Mac but sometimes, owning to MSFT monopoly on file formats, doing evil is necessary.

For all interested, I posted, over on PM, about my troubles with the site, asking if anyone else was having similar issues. Thread was deleted.

LOL.

Maybe he "forgot" to pay the electric company? <snicker>

Try posting about cherry pickers or toll roads...some of Don's favorite subjects.

Don has much more time to spend on the board these days considering that his other "business" interests are sucking air during this economic downturn.

Considering how bad his cash flow has become, Don may not even have enough cash for his boat's gas tank this summer.
