    I'm finding something a little suspicious. I want to install the homebrew channel. So, as you do, I go to hbc.hackmii.com. According to Firefox, my connection was refused. So, I go to wiibrew.org, and my connection is also refused there. A little suspicious, no? I go to hackmii.com, and the site loads without any page style.

    Is this happening for anybody else right now? Or is my ISP playing around with me?

    Don't worry about it, bushing said it was because their host is down and that they'd get in contact with him as soon as he is online.

    same here. Been loading the bootmii page for more than 5 minutes.

    On a side note, Bootmii is released? (Please don't flame me)

    No...but maybe they closed the sites only for this..writing some stuff about bootmii and release it...then open the sites with BootMii [​IMG] (no, don't take this serious...)

    Oh..and I can acess it..with Google-Cache and Only-Text...then it works

    Phew, I thought it was just my isp or something. I was getting real pissed. Besides those 2 sites, it's hard to find homebrew.
