Hi All.
I just tried to visit the Distrowatch site, I got the message
"This website is currently unavailable due to account issues. Please visit again later. "
Anyone know what is going on?

hmmm,..
interesting. I just went there, and got that "Website Unavailable" thingy too. Anyone know what's going on?
(Yeah,..I just saw that the distrowatch.org site is working) Maybe they are just changing over, as Keef said.

I've just tried it and again got the "Website unavailable" message, so I don't know what's going on there. (I'm sticking with Puppy anyway for the time being, so no great loss Smile ).

I went to distrowatch.org and clicked on Puppy in the hit list.
I was taken to a page that said the site and page was unavailable.
I then clicked on the back arrow at the top of the browser and was returned to distrowatch.
When I clicked on Puppy again, the page for Puppy came up fine.
But distrowatch.com, which I had bookmarked said the site had problems and the site administrator should contact the ISP.

DistroWatch.com domain name status

As many of you noticed, the distrowatch.com domain name was suspended by the domain's registrar, Doteasy, last Sunday. I don't want to go into details about what exactly happened as it's a long and boring story. Suffice to say that I feel grossly aggrieved by the series of greedy and malicious actions taken by Doteasy and as soon as I get this sorted out, I will be looking into transferring the distrowatch.com domain name to another registrar. If any of you have a recommendation for a good registrar (preferably with customer support personnel that is competent), please let me know in the comments section below or send me an email to distrowatch@yandex.ru (the distrowatch.com mail service has also been suspended by Doteasy).

Best,
