    The domain at HandHeldSources.com seems to have expired, as it brings up a page with a notification and one of those crappy search engines. Is there any other info on this?

    Not very surprising. GBAlpha has always been pretty bad about supporting their English speaking customers. They'll probably get it back up before too long, assuming they even notice that it's down.

    In the meantime, you can find updates here, or at linFox Domain.

    It's a pity, because that's where Sakura will be released. [​IMG]

    That's odd... nothing for me.

    Maybe it's a region thing?

    I'm not seeing it either, but it's probably just because my ISPs DNS server hasn't updated yet.

    Like I said, it's probably just because our pitiful American systems can't compete with your blazing fast Croatian DNS servers. Everyone in the world should be able to access it within 24-48 hours.

    If you can get the IP for the site we could all access it now, not that it really matters. There isn't anything on handheldsources.com that linFox doesn't already have on his site.

    I'm still seeing the generic unregistered site page, but that's because my ISP blows.

    There are a lot of different levels of suck for an ISP. With DNS updating issues it really depends on how often they update it. They might only update it once a week, but if that update happens to come right when you want it then you're happy.
