    What happened to it? When I go to the site it won't connect to it. It says that this site cannot be reached.

    Keep trying. It's up. Probably a lot more users now that slowhax has been out for a few days now.

    Working fine here, you might try a VPN that has a free trial to see if it is a routing issue or ISP block. I personally use Mullvad for all my torrenting/piracy needs and I know they give you 3 free hours to start but here is a good list of no-log VPNs many of which have free trial periods.

    Why is it that whenever that happens to someone it first pops up in GBAtemp? :unsure:

    That site goes down frequently. That's USUALLY when you know a hot release is out. It was up and down all day when Moon leaked :o

    No surprise there. In the beginning, GBAtemp was just as much of a warez site as iso is now. The 'temp' in GBAtemp refers to the site getting shut down and moving all the time in the early days.

    AFAIK it referred to only the 10 latest ROMs being available for download at a given time.
    Lemme look at the wiki history for details in a minute.

    EDIT:
    So apparently the temp in the name referred to both having the 10 latest ROMs at a given time, and constantly switching hosting space.

    lol yeah I know, I've been a member on this site for a few years and was a lurker long before. I even remember when GBAtemp had a red theme instead of blue. Possibly I downloaded GBA roms off this site before too but I cant remember precisely.

    Have you checked out the temps wiki? Full of some good info and great temp history.
