One of the best conservative forums on the internet, Free Republic, is down at the moment and I'm not sure why. I haven't been able to access it since yesterday. I found this group of messages which might provide some light on the situation.
Here's one of the messages:
Bad news. FR is down hard. John says he can't even communicate with the system.And then later:
He's going to have to drive up to the data center to get hands on. Hopefully,
it'll be back online later tonight. Sorry about the downtime.
The clock was fixed. And the server has been up solid all this year since JohnHopefully it's online again soon.
finally found and fixed the problem that had been plaguing us. Haven't been down
in many moons -- until today.
