The site isn't up.
Bue Lemma still owns the domain name and everything. But last I saw, on the site, some attacking of the site (script kiddies, I dunno) pulled it down. And at the moment, Blue Lemma ismoving in a new direction so I think he's concentrating on that.

You can read his latest announcement here:

Still, I'd say it's good to have the site back ASAP, at least an emergency version of it. Broken links tend to scare off people. :(

I think it should be mirrored somewhere.

The site's back up! ...Well, sort of. The domain name is reconnected, but I haven't uploaded the stuff yet. Things are at least moving in the right direction, though :wink:

Hey, that's good news! I wonder who would hack a site like that? I always thought other kinds of sites were targets - do they pick it randomly? I can't imagine a hacker group going for fan ren'ai sites :? Or could it be you have some enemies... :D Since it got hacked twice...

IIRC, lemmasoft.net was hacked only once, but also has experienced other problems (such as domain registration issues, and exceeding the server bandwidth.)

But I should point out that the internet is filled with computers infested with worms, each of which is trying to infect other computers with copies of the worm. I checked the Intrusion Prevention System logs for shinobu (the virtual linux server that hosts bishoujo.us, renai.us, and lemmasoft.renai.us), and it showed 68 blocked hack attempts since the 18th.

Let me just remind people to keep the software on their computers and their servers up to date, to make backups of the projects that they're working on, and to use firewalls where appropriate.

Aaaah, a touch of history... I especially like the very first grand opening page :P

PyTom>> oh yes, I have a triple-backup system, no way I'm losing my work! Too many bad experiences :(

I know you all probably already know this by now , but the site seems to be working fine again , with the exception of the resource downloads ( such as the photopacks ) .
Just thought I ought to bring that up.
Thank you and please don't throw fruit or worse at me.
( or should that be the other way around? )
:wink: :lol:
