Today I tried to connect to the Homebrew Channel to see what new homebrew apps are out only to discover ther www.codemii.com is no longer available.

Have they been removed by legal means or have there servers failed?

I did some basic testing to see if the site exists.

C:\Users\Blank>nslookup www.codemii.com
Server: UnKnown
Address: 192.168.0.1

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: www.codemii.com
Address: 79.136.53.163

C:\Users\Blank>ping www.codemii.com

On top of that when you google Homebrew channel and then try to go to the official website hbc.hackmii.com or wiibrew.org these pages are no longer available.

If their sites ever go down... it's not do to any legal reasons as everything they hosted is perfectly legal. Server maintenance/server move is the most likely culprit... Possible downtime from lack of funds is also a possibility.

Answered myself lol opps
The Homebrew Browser has been upgraded to v0.3.9b. As you may have noticed the CodeMii server has been down for a few days, so I’ve now added a secondary backup server to the Homebrew Browser in case this happens again, downloads and ratings won’t work on the secondary backup server. Also a connection test has been added so you don’t have to wait for the read error -116 to happen and it will retry 3 times for 3 seconds before trying the backup server.

Download HBB v0.3.9b or run HBB on your Wii to update

    The phat model had amazingly loud speakers tho.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".
  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    Nothing special about it other than it's more comfortable than the Lite

    @SylverReZ if you could find a v5 DS ML you would have the best of both worlds since the v5 units had the same backlight brightness levels as the DS Lite unlockable with flashme
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but that's a long shot
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i think only the red mario kart edition phat was v5
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

  • BakerMan @ BakerMan:
    anyways, we need to re-normalize physical media

    if i didn't want my games to be permanent, then i'd rent them

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Agreed, that why I try to buy all my games on disc, Xbox anyways. Switch games (which I pirate tbh) don't matter much, I stay offline 24/7 anyways.
  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    I don't pirate them, I Use Them :mellow:. Like I do @BigOnYa 's couch :tpi::evil::rofl2:

  • cearp @ cearp:
    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm
  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
