    I went to the site and got an error. Is this just maintenance or something bigger?

    dDos is the rumor but unconfirmed. Also Twitter seems to have yanked their account.

    It was being DDoSed really bad (as mentioned above). Anyhow, some adjustments have been made and it should slowly be getting back up in the next few hours. Now all that can be done is hope it doesn't go down again. I'm still working on the updated version but things like this do slow down the development. When the updated version goes live, that shouldn't be causing any downtime at all.

    And regarding twitter, it appears many people think AnonNewsNet (the apparently disappeared account) is related to, but it's not. The account of is @anonnews_org and it's still alive... I have no idea what happened to ANN.

    Yup, Dynadot disabled the domain. I'm working on a domain transfer.

    it's been off and on for a couple of days, there's a bar on the top of the window that says that it is offline, but is showing me a "snapshot" of the page

    It didn't get a pony for its birthday. It's going to be depressed about this for a while.

    It came back for a few hours the other day but was hacked upside, backward, and away. It's too closely associated with other Anonydrama atm, probably going to be ddos'd to hell for a good long while.
