Baen Books site unavailable

Does anyone know what is going on at Baen Books, I purchased some books only lat week and went on again last night to buy some more and the site was unavailable, I tried again this morning and it was still not there - www.webscription.net

It's working for me. Try doing a "tracert" to it - perhaps you have a routing problem between it and you?

Do you have some problems connecting on another pages? You can try this two commands:
ping 63.119.44.197
ping www.webscription.net
If you get responce from server using first command, but not the second command, then there is something wrong with your DNS (domain name service). If you get good responce from both commands, connection and DNS is OK and problem must be somewhere else.

Works for me now as well

Just tried it again and it is up and running for me now.
Perhaps the site was down for a few hours, I was able to get to plenty of other sites.

Well it's a releif its back again, it's a great place to get SF books ;-)

Yes, the Baen site was indeed unavailable for a time last evening / early this morning -- problems were on their end.
