    Is The Firing Line Offline For Good?

    After a morning of non-access, what comes up at TheFiringLine.com is now one of those place-holder sites with generic search/add links from a web service provider. Does anyone know if the real Firing Line is now defunct? What's the skinny?

    According to a post on The High Road both of TFL's nameservers went down about 1500 MDT yesterday. It will be back at some point.

    Looks like certain networking gear won't allow connection to their equipment. Like as not, once that issue is corrected then things will be back to normal.

    I sometimes use google to search for posts there. I could not get into the site but used the cached paged feature to still read..with no graphics of course. I like going to that site too.

    No, they are not gone. They have been down a few times of late for some maintenance issues, but that is all.
    Considering yourself to be defenseless is the first administrative step to becoming a victim.
