WTF SourceForge
« on: April 30, 2008, 05:38:32 AM »
It's down. As in.. completely bombed. Unreachable, times out, gone! Why do I care? Well, I don't really, but I happen to have to care at this moment because I desperately need access to the Weka Data Mining software for OSX. I've googled all around using various queries.. and my conclusion so far is that any mention of a Weka download points back to SF. How crappy is that? I'll tell you: very crappy!

:/

Somebody must be haxing SF good. This doesn't seem like a random crap-out..

Oy.. I bumped into this with yet another Google query: http://ftp.roedu.net...rs/sf.net/w/we/weka/

Was able to grab version 3.5.6. Phew. That took entirely too long...

All SF sites were down (including slashdot and freshmeat) due to a routing issue.
See relevant slashdot post here.

Rackspace uk did that to us once a few years ago - very annoying because you get a lot of grief and there is nothing you did or could do about it. Except move hosts...
