The server went down due to a hardware failure, as I remember.

OK OK!

Here's the low-down. Plain out and flat.

We've been working our a$$'es on a total re-vamp of all FilesNetwork.com sites. That includes, new site layouts, new download mirrors, new systems, everything new and better. Now, the problem isn't there.

Here's the problem:

The company that 'manages' our servers has been great up till now. But, a couple of days ago, a small bug occured in the web-mail system and while they fixed it, they accidently screwed up something else, something totally crucial. So, for 2-3 days, work was being done on that trying to locate and bix the stupid mishap.

To top all that off, the main hoster that hosts FilesNetwork.com (www.mindcoders.com) is shutting down. Just like that. So that means FN itself isnt hosted so obviously it cant host other sites. We are currently trying to get a new hoster but it isnt that easy! During these 4/5 days, the hosted sites will be temporarily moved to temporary servers (if they can stand it) until a proper solution is made.

So, again, we really are sorry and apologize to the public for the inconvenience but as u can see, it wasn't our fault and we are working hard on rectifying the issues. Don't think we all have our feet up sipping a can of beer!
