The site went down on 2017-03-15. (Host still up, nothing on port 80).
Nightcrawler, the owner of the website, has left the following message, relayed by The Cutting Room Floor:
There's not much I can say right now. An unfortunate chain of events occurred requiring a new full server built from scratch. There are some major real life events going on precluding me from making RHDN my top priority right now.
Sadly, I also have a DSL account with third world upload speeds, and this will impede all restoration efforts made. Things are very chaotic and I don't where we stand yet for restoration timelines. I will let you know when I know more.
We haven't shut down and will be back.
I aw one of our typical jokers is already keeping everybody informed. Do we know who is behind that?
The fake Twitter account proclaimed the site was closed due to a threat from Nintendo.
A few days later the website is back online. Downloading a file now requires copying a password into a form, restraining archival attempts.
