Go to en.gentoo-wiki.com/ and it displays:

To Whom This May Concern:


You are seeing this message due to the site you are trying to view having its DNS hosted by EveryDNS.

EveryDNS services will be fully discontinued as of September 9th, 2011.

As part of this process, we have set several scheduled outages leading up to this date to give site owners a chance to migrate their services to DynDNS.com:

New Schedule
August 29th 14:00 - 15:00 UTC - 1 hour
August 30th 14:00 - 17:00 UTC - 3 hours
September 1st 14:00 - 20:00 UTC - 6 hours
September 6th 14:00 - 24:00 UTC - 10 hours
September 7th 14:00 UTC - Sept 8th 14:00 UTC - 24 hours
September 9th 14:00 UTC - EditDNS and EveryDNS services retired.

I did a search and couldn't find anything about this on the forums. Is this a known issue? The wiki is fantastic, sometimes I can use it to fool myself that I know what I'm doing :D

Thanks.

Edit: Just to add that after 20:00 UTC they took the block off and it worked again, so if you try now then it presumably will be fine.
However, on September 9th they'll apparently be retiring it for good.

tbaac,

Its up to the owners/operators of gentoo-wiki.com to sort there DNS out.
Its not under Gentoo control.

Oh okay. Thanks Neddy.

I just think that its a very useful resource and that it would be a shame were it to disappear.

tbaac,

Its unlikely to disappear. It had a nasty accident in the past and was brought back from the google cache.
This is much simpler to fix.
