    static.slysoft.com is not resolving in DNS.
     
  2. must be, I cannot get in either.

    www.slysoft.com is also not accessable. Interestingly the forum.slysoft.com site still is.

    Down for me at 5:15 PM GMT.

    Blah. Blah. Give it a little time. Could be a number of things. I'm sure we'll be given information when it's important.

    The main DNS entry that is fubarred, I can still reach the server through a slide sideways. I can reach Slysoft's beta sandbox webpage: http://sandbox.slysoft.com/beta/

    Didn't the upper right hand corner of the forum pages used to have a link/links to Slysoft's main page(s)? I don't see any images/links that I vaguely recall being there.

    Main Slysoft.com page is still down @ 3 minutes to 1 P.M. Central Standard Time (where I live in the U.S.)

    It did furry, but it makes sense that if the domain name doesn't resolve, the image hosted there can't be requested and shown either. I have sent a mail to a contact in slysoft but i've yet to hear back. The mail may very well be "on hold" for delivery because the domain current isn't being resolved. As soon as i hear something i'll post back, unless someone of slysoft beats me to it.

    The image that was there still works. It just seems to have been removed from the top right.
    Hopefully just some routine maintenance/upgrades.

    Getting a "404" on that link. Not surprising.

    Coincidence, but the last Slysoft employee to comment here was Pete yesterday.

    email to slysoft.com should still be working as DNS still seems to be serving
    up the MX record:

    > set type=mx
    > slysoft.com
    Server: 8.8.8.8
    Address: 8.8.8.8#53

    Non-authoritative answer:
    slysoft.com mail exchanger = 10 ovh3.slysoft.com.
    slysoft.com mail exchanger = 10 lw.slysoft.com.
    slysoft.com mail exchanger = 10 h5.slysoft.com.

    Yes I think that the fact that the MAIN website is down for this amount of time and not a single comment from Slysoft is worrying to say the least.

    actually the problem seems to be limited specifically to the dns servers. If you simply access "http://beta.slysoft.com" you get the MAIN WEBSITE ONLINE with full functionality for navigation and software downloads. Don't worry to much, the problem can be anything from simple dns maintenance to the "horrible" pressure of the mpaa and cohorts. Don't jump to conclusions just yet :)

    it could be but that was 2 weeks ago and only refers to WANTING to put the company on the list. There's no news on if this has actually happened (which would be very fast considering its only been 2 weeks). At this point we'll have to hope they put some news out soon, but it serves no-one atm to jump to conclusions.
