    I feel like a spy :eek:

    The latest when trying to get to neowin.net

    Neowin is closed for now.

    We don't have the capacity to support the type of site we have always wanted to bring to our visitors. Despite our best efforts we are still refusing our visitors and long term members the web site due to errors similar to "Server too busy"

    Since Neowin will never be just another phpnuke or copycat wannabe tech site we would rather call it a day than continue to limp on our resources. So for now we opt for closure.

    Make sure IRC is open when you click the link. I did and it brought me to ##neowin, you have to go to #neowin
