Anyone know what happened to www.crazyguyonabike.com??

Hi
Does anyone know what has happened to www.crazyguyonabike.com?? It disappeared off the air about 2 weeks ago, now my journal updates I am emailing are bouncing back, and its DNS records now seem to be gone as well.
I have emailed Neil Gunton, but have had no response....
Thanks

Thanks, I should have spent more time searching first!! The numbers of emails I am getting from people asking what has happened to my journal is astonishing.....

By the way, my journal for my across US trip is chris.crazyguyonabike.com, called "Chris across the US", if anyone is interested. I certainly wouldn't be doing this trip without the inspiration and help of people on this site....

I find it hard to believe that the Neil, the owner of Crazyguy, didn't at least give a heads up to those with journals on his site explaining the downtime.

I'm sure this has caused a bunch of problems for touring cyclists. Crazyguy has become a valuable resource to the touring community. I hope it recovers from this serious problem.

Hi Folks ...

Let's not get too excited yet. I received neilspace.com auto message too. Went to log on linking from bookmark in Nestscape and also reply back to Neil with a 'thank you' only to have MailDeamon kick back and a not found error message from Nestscape.

I suspect Neil had a fresh hardware problem so let's cross fingers.

Later,

Tim

THINK. With his server down, should he have e-mailed everyone individualy?
