    Looks like Neowin is down again... I know Toxikk is working on their new theme at the momnent but the main front-end and the forum is currently down at the moment...

    As Neowin.net is built around the orginal version of Virtuanews before it became Virtuanews (I think I got this bit correct)

    Error message Looks like a standard Virtuanews error...

    There seems to have been a slight problem with the database.

    We apologise for any inconvenience

    Lets hope there are back soon

    Yeah, I got your email.
    Trying to find out more information.

    I am suprised, if there is a serious database issue, that a temporary page hasn't been put up, as it has been down for around 8 hours now.

    I'll see if I can talk to Neobond or Redmak and if there is a way that I can help, I will.
