is offline for about a week now because of a hacking attempt it appears. How many people do you think are wondering what happened to that site? Many, I guess. At least according to the increasing amount of people hitting this blog via the google search term "What happened to gamedev.net?"
. Some user asked this even in the comment section of one of the previous blog entries. :)
Come on guys, I bet you can live without that page for one week. But I understand, you often only notice you need something when it is missing already.
Tip: There are some alternatives. I prefer devmaster.net
and of course the irrlicht forum
