3D Portal is back online. Sort of. As you may or may not know, 3D Portal has moved hosts. They used to be with PlanetQuake, but now they're with telefragged. However, since they just made the change this weekend, it's possible you are seeing a screen that says that they are in the process of moving.
If that's the case, then your DNS has not updated to the new location. Keep trying, and you'll get there soon enough. If possible, nag the person who runs your LAN or ISP about updating their DNS more frequently. This may also affect you if you run through a proxy server or do not update your local disk cache very often. 3D Portal is online, so make sure you can see the latest updates there.
In other 3D Portal news, Chris Day has had a change of heart, and is staying onboard the 3D Portal team. Glad to see ya back, Chris!
