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
