makemkv.com domain down

Post by mike admin »

One should never underestimate human stupidity. Due to a chain of unlikely events we managed to (temporarily) loose the makemkv.com domain. The domain is still ours - it is just we can't renew it for now. So, makemkv.info is our new home for a bit. As of today (June 17th) things are still broken a bit, but everything should be back to normal on a new address in a day...

also... if you currently don't control the .com does this mean our emails with logfiles have been going missing as well? do we send to .info or should we just wait a few days?

I might need to add, that the Recaptcha domain is still the old one in the forum so new members cannot join without changing their hosts file. :)

The switch was pulled yesterday, I do have most emails. If you didn't get the bounce message, most likely the email went through...
