I have noticed the Lynx web site at has been down for a while, but can't find any information on why. I am hoping it is still an active project and so wanted to check.

It's been down since the 11th or 12th of this month (I scraped a copy of
the most recent mirrors.html from a google crawl dated the 11th). I noticed it was down on the 13th, and was told by the guy in charge of the system that it had a disk failure. Not to nag him, I intend checking tomorrow to see what progress has been made.

I have a copy of the ftp mirrors on my home machine, as well as the source archives, so it's mainly a matter of finding if that server will be useful again - takes time.

(I spent about 2/3 of last week working on lynx, along with the usual
diversions into other programs...).

Thank you sincerely for all of your hard work on the best browser to ever exist! I mean it. I don't know of another one that comes close and so use it 90% of the time.
