I've been unable to get to it for the last hour or so.

Yeah I probably think so, because I too couldn't get onto the site!

P.S: Maybe python.org was also a victim of a DoS attack joining the leagues of Twitter, LiveJournal and Facebook?

Most likely maintenance time, those are scheduled most often on weekends.

I tried last night (about 12 hours ago) and it was down then. It is still down this morning. It is hosted in the Netherlands, so I doubt it's connected to the Twitter/Facebook stuff. I also Googled for mirrors, but Python doesn't host mirrors anymore. Too bad.

Of course this is the weekend that I was going to install 3.X and start converting. I could use Active State's version, but I think I'll wait until python.org comes back up.

Yeah and I am all excited and ready to embed python in my C++ app after seeing how easy it looks. C'est la vie.

This is a great site to keep in mind when you're posed with this question in the future...

Dang, what a good idea! Nothing more than a handful of PHP lines.

Anyway... looks like python.org is back up.
