    I think the pidgin.im site has been down for a few days.  Does anyone know what the story behind this is?

     
    • No, but it's not the first time.

      The pidgin.im site is not down but there was some talk in the #pidgin irc channel the other day that there might be some DNS issues hitting some users.

      I haven't been able to get to it now for a couple days again.  I have even formatted my pc (for other reasons) and it doesn't work at home or work.

      Is it down now?

      seems fine to me.

      you can always try accessing via a proxy server (as you might be experiencing local problems) such as:

      Within just the last half-hour it's been really hit-or-miss.

      I think this time around it may be because the site's getting hammered - there's an issue with MSN servers preventing Pidgin from connecting, and the first place people go to find out why is developer.pidgin.im

      If its any help, I've managed to connect via using IP address.  developer.pidgin.im seems to be the 74.63.8.111 address, but I cannot seem to connect to it using HTTP; however connecting via HTTPS gives a message suggesting hosting problems. I've also collected the following:

      > server 208.100.2.214
      Default Server:  [208.100.2.214]

      From the https://74.63.8.111:
      developer.pidgin.im is currently down!

      Sorry for the inconvenience. We're dealing with a few hosting problems. We hope to have things back up and running again soon, but we don't have an estimate on when that will be.

      I think the traffic may be the issue.  It is down again for me this morning.
