A number of readers have been asking about the Blender Materials site being down. Christian aka paratron tells me that his ISP pulled the rug from under him; they deleted his site due to excessive use but did not warn him about the pending disruption, telling him instead after the fact. He's in the process of changing it over to another sever
"Actually I have some issues in getting my domain back from the provider (oh if I had just known that this was such a GREAT company before I started my contract) but I will put the whole project back up on my parastudios.de server for the next time until I get this done."
I'll keep you informed when he get's it back up and running.
