Submission + - Sourceforge websites down (sourceforge.net)

An anonymous reader writes: A large number of Sourceforge subdomains and projects have been offline for over 24 hours. No word from Sourceforge as to the cause of problems and denial of service. Sourceforge is a Slashdot Media site, and a sister of Slashdot. Is Sourceforge still relevant in today's open source community, or is this the last gasp of a failing museum?

I didn't know it, but after visiting it, I ran into the AsciiDoc article and I'm giving it a try, I guess I'll use it to write my technical documentation since OpenOffice gets on my nerves. I don't know if it's edited by the Spaghetti Monster itself, but hey, it's always good to have a channel to get to know FOSS projects. If you don't like it, don't go there, that's all. Don't be bitter, it's Friday.

Some obscure group of dudes that call themselves "Temple of Transgression" and develop an antivirus (ok, ok, only the frontend) in VB6 are fighting hard for not being taken seriously.

Why is TT Livescan written in VB6, instead of another programming language? VB6 is still widely used, just like most other programming languages. In terms of development, VB6 is geared towards rapid GUI development. Combined with the fact that most of our coding is designed to be as efficient as possible, VB6 is the best option. Shortly before 32-bit support is to be phased out for Windows, we will make a new version available. It will most likely be written in Delphi.

And no, I didn't know "VTE Virus Scanner".
