I have problem to open all pages from gentoo wiki ... i try also from user account, root and windows computer and all day i get this massage :

Code:
ERROR
The requested URL could not be retrieved

While trying to retrieve the URL: http://gentoo-wiki.com/Special:Search?

The following error was encountered:

    * Unable to forward this request at this time.

This request could not be forwarded to the origin server or to any parent caches. The most likely cause for this error is that:

    * The cache administrator does not allow this cache to make direct connections to origin servers, and
    * All configured parent caches are currently unreachable.

Your cache administrator is root.

Google has a snap shot of the majority of gentoo-wiki, google what you want to find in the wiki, then just click that cache button under the link, for example i goggled gentoo dr17 and the cache shows me a page at around one day old

This is Google's cache of http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_e17. It is a snapshot of the page as it appeared on 25 Jul 2008 11:02:13 GMT.

Does anybody know when the wiki is back up?

For the record last Wednesday I enthusiastically wanted to show a colleague of mine how great open source applications were and I told him about Wiki's, how wonderful they could be, how many advantages they have as a documentation repository... So, of course, I typed the URL of Gentoo Wiki and... Holy sh**! Down!

You can imagine how... less enthusiast I could be...

I hate Murphy!

Why the wiki is going down in the first place ?

Hardware failure or something else ?

When the site is down you can use Google's cache to view a page if you know the specific URL.

Alternatively you can use www.archive.org to view older versions, obviously it won't have the most recent changes, currently the most recent snapshot is from the 22nd August 2007 so its quite out of date, but you might still find what your after (Google's cache would be better though).

And so what if the sites down? These things happen, and it usually takes a little time before the right people are informed and get round to resolving it. Frustrating that its not readily available, yes. End of the world, no.
