    I've been fired up since I got home from work and the wife can;t wait until it is back up! Next to TS.com this is one of my favorite sites!

    I ran a traceroute on the IP (64.34.174.91) and connected to it in 46 milliseconds in 13 hops from half-way across the country so the domain is alive. That leaves the forum server(s) as the probable culprit(s). The ping indicated that someone (something) had updated their database at 2215 today so someone is doing something. They'll be back up when they have been repaired, I suppose.

    The domain server is unresponsive this morning; either it's down now or a problem with routing is blocking the connection. Since the domain was still up yesterday and only the websites were down, server involvement seem most likely.

    <blockquote>"they have been down for over a month!!!!!! I check every day."</blockquote>

    Both the web site and the domain were active on Sunday.

    This is the message that appears on the ShotgunSports domain. Messages like this usually mean that the site is gone for good...<center
