    Gothic.net

    I haven't been there for about a week, or so. Today, when I went, I kept getting "Connection refused" in FireFox, and that MSN page for an invalid URL.

    For those not familiar, it's a webzine. I also submitted a story to them several months back, and never did get even an acknowledgement of reciept, let alone a yay, or nay about acceptance.

    If the webzine is defunct, what do I do about my submission? Am I free to just gleefully try elsewhere? Or do I have a bunch of BS to go through to get it back?

    This is in the wrong place. Sorry.

    FWIW, several boards have been blinking on and off this week, Gothic.net included.

    Or sunspots. Or everyone home for summer vacation crashing the servers. Or a Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy.

    Whew! No worries, folks. I have it on Good Authority (from friend of owner) that everything's fine and they'll be back up on Monday (7/18).

    Just an FYI...after a much longer hiatus than expected, Gothic.net has returned under new management. How this will affect things remains to be seen.
