There's a suggestion that 8bs.com might be down for scheduled (albeit delayed) maintenance.

Anyone know for sure?

cjr8bs commented further down that thread. He said the server was hacked and they intend to fix it.

Even the 'Contact 8BS' page doesn't work.

Hi All
Yeah. I am aware of all the problems. My apologies. The 8BS server was broken and Jess replaced it. It came back on line while I was away and unable to do anything about it. All the CGI stuff and email isn't working because of the changes. On top of that, Jess hasn't yet fixed up a log on for me anyhow but this is only a temporary thing. Unfortunately, I cannot say how long it will be. I shall contact Jess again. If anyone is desperate for anything, please contact me through here

8BS More or less fixed now. Stuff like a search to add and the catalogue of disc images to tidy up, but it should all work now
