I’m happy to let you know that the GNU/Linux news and updates website Happypenguin.org aka The Linux Game Tome is back online.
For now this website is a bit outdated (it’s been offline for almost two months), but I have no doubt that it will resume it’s mad amount of updates and become updated as before.

Also as of Nov 23rd 2010, Linux Game Publishing are having a few more unforeseen issues in bringing all of the sites back online, but they are working through these as quickly as possible.
Some sites are back online, such as penguinplay, happypenguin.org and the LGP keyserver.
For those who rented LGP games and have been unable to play the rental versions, LGP have extended the rental periods for anyone affected.

So I expect LGP and Tuxgames to be back online in a few days.
I also hope that they will recover from the offline damage and continue to support the GNU/Linux Gaming scene.

    How can you stat that happypenguin.org is back online while it is still offline? I don’t get anything when going to happypenguin.org, since they went down. So please review again.

  2. Maxim Bardin says:

    Well, it’s online for me (just checked again) – still outdated, but online.

    If anyone is wondering why Happy penguin is not getting new game submissions, I have a theory.

    I am a developer trying to submit my game, but I cannot login. The login interface just refreshes. Same happens when I request a new password. I tried contacting the staff by email like it says on the bottom of the page, but the email bounces.

    Well that’s weird Maxim. How come it isn’t back online for me then? o_o

  5. Maxim Bardin says:

    Don’t know…maybe try going there by IP : .
    Also the site isn’t 100% yet, no new news have been submitted so far – there is some sort of problem like vexorian said.

  6. Vistaus says:

    Nope, even going there by IP doesn’t work 🙁 Gives a timeout-page.
    Really weird that it’s till down here. Maybe ’cause the site isn’t 100% yet ’causes that it’s not available for everyone yet?

  7. Maxim Bardin says:

    I also have one domain in Germany which I cannot access very often, but sometimes it works 😉

  8. Vistaus says:

    Even almost 2 months later it’s still down here 🙁
    It sure isn’t my internet connection, ’cause it worked before the downtime of HP.org

    Do you have any idea what the problem could be?

  9. Vistaus says:

    Hmm, I noticed that when I use Google and then click on In cache near happypenguin.org, then the site does load. Any idea what I can do to make it work fully again?
