Does anyone know anything about what has happened to rense.com? The site has been down for two days. Many reposts here originate there.

Please, I don't need a discussion about the pros and cons of reposts, or some of their content, like chemtrails, UFOs or anti-zionist reporting. I just want to know the facts of their whereabouts. Given how much this newswire feeds from that trough, I figure someone's gotta know something useful and reliable, i.e., backed up with a link to a report on when and why the site went down.

no, no significant amount of content here is from rense

no, nobody knows why it's not available ... web servers go on and off line all the time

no, posting an article at portland indymedia because some web server is down for maintenance (or bill payment) is not a good use of newswire space ... "news," look it up, web server burps are not news

Make of it what you will, but this is what's out there.

<pre>
Rense.com is currently experiencing a totally unexpected hard drive problem which took place during a major server upgrade, one which will tremendously enhance the entire Rense.com experience...and establish superior security. Thanks to you, the site is growing exponentially and with such massive expansion comes occasional inconvenience and unexpected events like we are currently experiencing. We are doing everything possible to restore full service and expect to be back up with at least partial operations today. We greatly appreciate your patience as we re-establish your access to the world's number one net site for alternative news and information. Rest assured, the current down-time issue is being resolved as quickly as humanly possible...

Best wishes and our highest regards,

rense.com
