GCG is up, but only for this week and only two regions are up, GCG Welcome and a Podex region. People can cash out or transfer their money, and can transfer their inventory.

The website says they have no intention of closing and are still working on fixing things.

That error is Firefox specific. It is giving that errror with an https:// connection. The link you posted is http://. With an http:// connection I get a page from Godaddy saying "This Web page is parked FREE, courtesy of GoDaddy "

Here we go again ...
To be honest, I have a friend who was into GCG; and if she goes back then for $5USD I probably will too. I feel like it's kind of pointless without the hypergrid, but considering that after even after ten years of running a grid I couldn't deal with that level of administrative complexity either (which is why I've never opened Admeja to the public) I don't really blame him.

Win, lose or draw my hat's off to him for trying to get his shit together, doing the learning and coming back.

Heh, I've got egg on my face. Pretty much everyone I know of and from GCG has been like "not only no, but hell no" about GCG; including some folks that were really hardcore before.

If all the hosting remains in Canada, it can still count.
