Hey everyone. I am a member of Geekhack.org, but it seems that their site has gone down. Now whenever I try to locate their page, either direcly or indirectly via search engine.

Is the site completely down?

It pings fine, but a blank page comes up in a browser. Google it and you'll get this:


R00TW0RM. /*end of file*/?>

Does that tell you anything? hehe

Edit: They're rebuilding the site. See Geekhack's temporary home (http://www.overclock.net/t/1276281/geekhacks-temporary-home) then go here (http://deskthority.net/geekhacker-refugee-camp-f30/) to participate.

Bleck. So a worm (unpatched server?) or script kiddie?

Should be up soon.

In the meantime check out this Vintage Keyboards at the latest keyboard subreddit.

Post a pic of your mechanical keyboards and possibly win a NIB Dell AT101W with Black ALPS.

Thanks for your reply Ripster . I have just now favorited the refugee camp. I'm also glad you found your way over here. There are some here who could use the insight and experience of a complete keyboard afficionado and dedicated GeekHacker as yourself.

By soon, are you talking weeks soon, or months soon? Either is OK, but I would like to narrow it down a bit.

Glad to see you here

Cheers!

Whoops, forgotten about my post here.


Be very wary of Geekhack. They go down a lot and ALL my content was erased there by immature moderators. In addition the site keeps going down because of hardware problems.

Sorry I can't post here more (been busy recreating all my DELETED Geekhack content) but here are some Vintage Computer keyboard links you will like!
