There seems to be a problem - server at Linode does not respond. Although AltMe is kind of distributed, it uses central DNS (World lookup) server.
    
Some guys claim, that Linode is recently under some DDOS attack. We will see how it goes, but if this server is not renewed, AltMe is done ...

Message on the AltME home pages says:
    
an 2 AltME service issues:
The AltME backend is being affected by a major botnet DOS attack on various cloud service providers. This has been happening over the last several days. Our service provider informs us that temporary mitigation is underway to block Asia Pacific, the Middle East, South America, but keep traffic from North America and Western Europe. If service does not get resolved over the next day, we'll relocate the Altme backend to a different data center. Of course that will also be somewhat disruptive due to the required domain record change.
