It's down too though.  Placeholder pretty similar to the BG's.  Wonder if the hackers got him too.

Was it BG that got hacked, or BlueHost in general?

Several bluehost sites were.  I'm thinking the mm boards were a casualty of that.

That's kinda what I thought, but I wasn't sure.  Unfortunately, that means that even if the BG's tech guy submits a virus-free site to BlueHost, we still might not get MMX back in a timely fashion if the problem is on their end as well as on the site. 
Could the boards be hosted on a different service?  I have no idea how much of a pain it would be to transfer all of that data (though it would probably be easier than downloading the google cache of all the threads and copy-pasting them  ::)), but it might be worth it considering how insecure BlueHost seems to be.

From when I used it for a while and the sites I know that use it, DreamHost is rock solid.

Guys, quick question: aside from google cache and Wayback machine, is there any way to find my threads?

Specifically, my bestiary and the library... Somehow, the class compendium survived the google cache...
Working on something for here...

@Amechra:

Is your Avatar a picture of Gendo Ikari riding Fluttershy?
I had been wondering, since that Hivemind started.

I wasn't going to bother registering at first. Figured I would just lurk moar, as the saying goes. But, well, shit. If kevin_video is here, I guess I need to be as well.

And they happen to be having a special deal right now: http://lifehacker.com/5979130/last-chance-get-1-year-of-dreamhost-for-100-off

It only lasts until tomorrow though.

IT LIVES!

MMX and BG are back online.  Everyone, rejoice, and of course thank our wonderful hosts.  Assuming the original problem is fixed and mobile users are getting redirected and crap.
