I couldn't get into H2G2 for the last few days. Is this no longer worthy of comment?

And come on, folks - did nobody watch the SpaceX launch? No thread on that?

You were not alone. I was effectively locked out of h2g2 all weekend. I did notice the Pliny front page was working at one point, but I still couldn't get to my Ripley page and conversation list.

Also, at some point when I still could access the site, the horribly annoying Cookies notification had returned in force on every page opening.

Yes I also noticed. But you're right; once upon a time, such an outage would've spawned a thread of many pages. smiley - erm

Is there still a nowhere-2go-2 page anywhere?

Well, it's hard to start a thread about the site being down... when the site is down. smiley - laugh

Ah! But that's the point. There used to be a hooto refuge for the displaced masses of the site to congregate at whenever it was down. Used to be at yahoo groups, then something *noel*... smiley - huh I forget. So just wondered if there was anywhere nowadays.

I believe I saw a comment on Facebook or Twitter about the outage, but I can't recall precisely who or where.


I think those alternative spaces from the interregnum like Nowhere2Go2 (n2g2) might still be online, but are basically abandoned smiley - ghost town smiley - ghost. There's a couple of generic HHGttG themed boofcake pages (like Galactic Hitchhikers) where you'll find a lot of current and former researchers but that's not really what you're looking for. Maybe there's some place I don't know about that someone will pop in on this thread and enlighten us to.

I'm not one of the ones who could enlighten you, but I thought I'd just pop in here anyway...

Caiman raptor elk - Yes, but what if the box is REALLY big?

Just for the record, I noticed the site was offline too. (and online, an offline again). This time I was lucky to have remembered my password.

A visiting psychiatrist stood up in front of a group of patients, and said, "Why are we all here?"

A voice form the back of the room shouted, "Because we're not all there."

You can always tell who's a mathematician. They tear up when they hear "Sumwhere over the rainbow."
