    I don't often visit TV anymore but occassionally find some decent viral marketing stuff on their which I like to read through.

    Today I headed over to thevault.bz and it says domain expired 03-august-2009 and goes forward to a sedo parking page.

    Did they forget to renew their domain or have they had a notice to stop their site as it was a pirate tracker? The second I say because I highly doubt they would simply forget to renew their domain.

    Hmm, tried with FF / IE, cleared dns, cache, temp etc, renewed IP and still not working, definately down for me. Would ask in their IRC but I don't know the channel / room.

    Down here. Probably just the propagation of the domain name depending on where you are in the world.
