BROL seems to be down. Or at least, I can't get to it. Are others having the same problem?

Maybe we should ask for a sticky "Is BROL Down?" thread? :D

Yep, it's completely down.

Likewise. Does Bryan ever come here to calm us BROL addicts?

Sort of like (spoken in an unflappable airline pilot voice):

"Folks, this is your Captain speaking, we are experiencing a routine emergency. Nothing to be concerned about..."

Still down @~5:10 US CDT.

Bryan used to stop by when BROL was down, just to let us know what was going on. But that didn't work out so well since he had a stalker on this site.

Seems like its been down all day. I went by the Easy Racers forum and saw a few over there, but not much going on.

From BROL on Facebook (as transcribed by me):


We apologize profusely for the extended downtime. No one is more angry than we are. We've been the victim of several cyber attacks over the last year and we're trying to make sure it gets fixed right and doesn't happen again.

The web server is alive (but not yet serving what we'd except). Good sign.

Still down :(

Whoever host his web server sure seems prone to DOS attacks.

BlazingPedals 10-10-13 02:14 PM

I suspected that, since I couldn't get in from work; but the infrastructure guys have been playing with settings. Good to know it's not them.

cplager 10-10-13 02:28 PM

Here's the site I went to to verify:
