Is FIRST's website down?

I haven't been able to connect to the FIRST website today:

www.usfirst.org

Did I miss an announcement regarding maintenance or upgrade of their servers??

Re: Is FIRST's website down?

You silly people. Stop Googling "first"! You're causing the FIRST servers to crash!

Why is it whenever you tell someone there is a million billion stars in the universe they believe you, but if you tell someone that the bench over yonder has wet paint, or if usfirst.org comes up as the 1st result in Google people have to try it for themselves?

FIRST is currently working on creating new graphics and page layout for their website, since it hasn't changed much in the past four or so years. From what I heard, it should be done later this summer, so that's probably not it.



EDIT: After trying to look up the IP address of usfirst.org, I found this interesting tidbit from this page.

Re: Is FIRST's website down?

FIRST is closed for cinco de mayo (not a joke). the IT department is changed to a new server this week, so it is likely we are seeing a result of a new server bug and nobody there to fix it.

Re: Is FIRST's website down?

I figured it out. Andy Baker decided to Google FIRST and look what happened, it shut down the entire server and while FIRST says it's just renovations until May 8th it was shut down because of Andy Baker.
