Exclamation Welcome Back MBN!!!

The MBN is back and I'm HAPPY.
For those who didn't know what was wrong here's an explanation by wacko:

Hello MBN members,

You might have noticed the MBN is down. As you probably know, the site is
hosted on El_Muerte's server which uses the college connection of the
University Twente. Well, this morning the central computers building with
switch and routing servers burned down for a large part.

I thought you'd like to know this, so I'm sending this mail to a lot of the
MBN members, thanks to Firephoenix who sent an email to all RMP members

What we currently know:

- El_Muerte is very likely safe. The burning building is far from the
student flats.
- No victims. No hazardous fumes.
- So very likely also no data loss on anything on El's servers.
- HP is supplying emergency network material
- We have no idea when UT will be back online

The IRC channel is still active. Feel free to visit anytime for current
Channel: #lba
Network: EFnet

I'm glad that El is ok, and more importantly: the MBN IS OK!

Mods are welcome to make this thread sticky.
