I had been subscribing to a newsletter called Infopackets for the past three years. It generally included articles about the Windows Operating Systems and related information. Suddenly last week it seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth without any notice. I'm unable to reach their server. They no longer respond to email. Infopackets was by far the most informative periodical about Windows. Does anyone know what happened to them?

Edit: Moved topic from Windows 7 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

I wasn't able to find anything that explains the disappearance of Infopackets. However their Facebook and Twitter feeds both stopped on Sept. 22 2011. Also down for everyone or just me? shows their site link is in fact down: http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/http://www.infopackets.com/

I was able to call up the infopackets website and navigate in it just fine. I note, however, that there is nothing newer than Sept. 21 posted. Down for everyone? Now shows that the site is up as well.

Also was able to find their Twitter page, but nothing new since Sept. 22

Infopackets is back up and running. They had server issues.
