    bannerbomb.qoid.us seems to be down.

    UPDATE: If it doesn't work, you need to wait for your ISP to update their DNS.

    UPDATE 2:
    If you want to temporarly fix this issue before your ISP DNS update.
    Go to "C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc" For Mac OS X go to "/private/etc/hosts"
    Open & update "hosts" with notepad. Then click save.

    Important Note: After a week, remove this entry from the file and check if your ISP DNS is updated. If your DNS updated, remove this entry permamently from "hosts" to avoid future problems. If you don't, the IP may change again, but your "hosts" file will remain the same and not connect you to the correct IP.

    Code:
    # Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
    #
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    #
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    #
    # For example:
    #
    #ÂÂÂÂÂÂ102.54.94.97ÂÂÂÂ rhino.acme.comÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ# source server
    #ÂÂÂÂÂÂ 38.25.63.10ÂÂÂÂ x.acme.comÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ# x client host
    
    127.0.0.1ÂÂÂÂÂÂ localhost
    157.22.252.87ÂÂ bannerbomb.qoid.us
    UPDATE 3: Change from your ISP DNS to another free DNS service.

    OpenDNS
    208.67.222.222
    208.67.220.220

    Google Public DNS
    8.8.8.8
    8.8.4.4

    yup, its dead, which also means until its back up, it cannot be downloaded using nus auto downloader (which frustrated the hell out of me last night!)

    Does anyone know if we can legally upload BannerBomb to Filetrip (or anywhere else), or does Bannerbomb have the same file mirroring/hosting restrictions as the HackMii Installer?

    edit: Anyone? Seriously, bannerbomb is something that can't just go missing. If we're legally allowed to mirror it, I think we should.

    Down here as well.

    As for if it can be mirrored, I'd say just put it on mediafire and delete the file when/if it comes back up.

    its working fine again for me (and it wasn't working for me for almost the past 24 hours), so it should be up again for everyone

    I think this topic can be closed unless some1 is still having problems accessing the site

    edit: at techboy, have u tried a different browser? U can try using nus auto downloader to grab it if u want (it uses wget), if it works for u via nus auto downloader but not your browser, I think its safe to say the problem isn't the bannerbomb site

    I'm on my tech school network right now, so currently a small time company called ChescoNet.

    When I go home, I'll try it on Comcast.

    So.... what are we going to do.

    Mirror or will the site come back with a DNS update on our ISPs?

    All proxies don't work either

    Just tried Tor and it works.

    Guess we just have to wait for our ISP DNS to be updated.

    DNS updates take a while to spread, sometimes several days.

    The update simply hasn't finished spreading.

    Does anyone have the new IP for qoid.us? You can update your host file manually in Windows

    update in Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

    That's about the best we can do at this point. If it doesn't come up in 24 hours, maybe we'll have to mirror it.

    EDIT: 1000 posts...
