    Webmasterworld Down
    Just in cast you were wondering what had happened to Webmasterworld, see http://www.searchengineworld.com/forum911/1.htm - looks like a major failure at their web hosts that's taken out thousands of other sites too.

    And I'd heard that someone had finally figured out Google's algorhythm and posted it - 100% complete - on WMW. When Google found out, they whacked them...

    (Just kidding...)

    Must have been a massive failure, they've been down for well over 24 hours, and with a Google update going on too. I'll bet Brett is an unhappy camper about now.

    Why Adsense ban me? Then 3 days later write me an email to apologize and unban me.

    Poor Webmasterworld...also, it was posted their last backup was Aug 31, so they really got screwed moving hosts!

    The last off-site backup was Aug. 31, but there are more than likely server-resident backups fairly current because now that the files are being ported over I can already access some threads & posts on the WmW domain as recent as Sept. 16th and some forums later than that, and that was very early today. Some were accessible late yesterday.

    All the scripting can be set in place, but it'll take a HUGE amount of time to get all those files uploaded to the new host, once they're all retrieved.
