MRC - Back in South America!

Did MSX Association buy the msx.org domain? Did we deliberately block access to all visitors from South-America because of the MSX Manifest? Were we down and out forever? We're sorry, the truth is a lot more boring: there were just some annoying technical difficulties that caused the MSX Resource Center to be unreachable from many (if not all) South American countries, cutting the active MSX Communities of Brazil and Argentina from the latest MSX news and all other features of our website.

A few days ago we found out why the amount of visitors to our website had suddenly been decreasing. Thanks to Ricardo Bittencourt and Flyguille, who informed us that they could not reach the MSX Resource Center, we found out that our nameservers did not answer to any lookups from South-American countries. After fixing the server-configuration a bit, we got the first reports of relieved visitors stating that the MRC was back in action in South America. We would like to thank all the people who informed us, helped out and worried so much. However, don't worry about one thing: MSX Resource Center is here to stay!

The hoax about being bought by MSX-Association? That was an april fool's joke by Adriano. A very good one, since many (including me) were got for this one. Smile

And, off course, it's a pleasure to have my daily dose of msx.org again. Wink

Wow, there were people who actually thought *that* was what happened???

Lol Smile.

Nice first move that would be, to block out an entire community -_-;;... I hope you don't seriously think that bad of MSX Association.

No, no! He didn't said it was blocked, but that the entire site was offline while MSX Associoation was building the "New Portal", with "whole new services". Smile
