    I heard it died out, if this is true then it’s a huge blow to everyone who visits bash

  9. tod says:

    maybe someone should try to get in contact with one of the mods of the bash site
    or if anyone uses irc then ask about it on there, im sure a mod of one of the big channels in irc would know what happened

    “Probably caught in the bitch fight between the two backbone operators who’ve suddenly decided that they aren’t getting enough cash for peering one another’s network traffic. That’s what having network bandwidth paid by the megabyte does for you.”

    Well, that’s one theory. :P

    Looks like its RIP :(

    Although nothing can hold a candle to bash, there are some funnies over at

  25. Lee says:

    Here’s what I see on the homepage right now:

    I should have been more clear before, but here are the hosting details:
    Bash is too big to be on a shared server.
    We have a number of machines already, but are open to either colocating them or using a supplied machine.
    Bandwidth is substantial but not ridiculous, remember we have no images, almost entirely text.
    A trade or agreement can be made, but we try to:
    A) keep the site free and clear of advertising clutter.
    B) Not have substantial upkeep, as this is a hobby run by donated time and effort.

    So, in effect, we offer some links to the host for their services, but no huge blocks of ads.
    Thank you to everyone that has offered services thus far, there are too many to even respond to
    and we genuinely appreciate the support from this great community.

    We’ll be back up in a few days.
    Interested in hosting us? Drop a line to “qdb-info” – AT –
