Ripway file server is down

I discovered today that the Ripway file hosting site I used to upload all my handouts and assignments is down. I don't know if this is a temporary or permanent situation. I have e-mailed the folks at Ripway inquiring as to what is going on.

If it turns out the site is dead, I will need to upload all of my files again to a new server. I don't know when everything will be back up, as if your lives are like mine, it seems that on some days I barely have enough time to eat three square meals.

Ah the joys of teaching... and technology!

If anyone knows of a free and reliable file hosting site that allows direct links, please let me know.

Thanks. I'll check it out.

The Ripway server is now working again. The website said they were experiencing a "denial of attack," tech jargon for computer hackery.

I wish the folks at Ripway well. I don't want to upload all my files again... nor do I want to change all the hyperlinks in my prior blog posts!
