I tried making a summary of the current situation below and will post any
updates with follow up emails to keep everyone informed.
the bad news. It looks like the scenario we were afraid of happened. =(
The hosting provider must have shut down the server cause it wasn't
paid by Manuel. Unfortunately we could not do anything about this since
the account was on Manuel's name, no-one else had access to it and he
hasn't been reachable for some time now. In that regard, I hope he is
tried to contact the spanish host in the recent past so he could pay
for the server to remain up but that did not work out either. He tried
to reach them again today, we will see how this one goes.
good news is, we expected this would happen sooner or later, so we have
recently purchased a new server with a new host. We have also
registered the "chakraos.org" domain name. Totte had already started
working on setting this up and planning the roadmap for the move but
there is still work to be done. Hopefully he will be able to get at
least the main page and the forums up in the following days.
systems should not be affected by this. Unfortunately their next
updates will be delayed, and we can't offer any support through the
forums. For important issues one could ask on the mailing lists or the
social networks accounts.
This is a temporary blackout for Chakra, but it's also a start of a new level of organization, through which these kind of issues will be avoided.

so much for their reliability. no terms were violated. i'll buy a quality server in about a month or so, dedicated, open to everyone known to the project. even 'formers' and newbs. it just needs scripts and such to repair any learning-damage anyone does immediately so things like our main_port_eighty_web_site doesn't go down to the public. this event hurts my heart greatly. i am very sorry to all that i haven't been able to help continue this vision these past couple of years... my code and irc input may have been too ugly for the chakra standard due to the constant kidney stones. passing about 2 per week isn't very fun, i have a nice jar full now. i've just recently gained my weight back and am able to function again. and my power cord for my development machine has arrived finally!! hope to you and meet you guys soon, with more help than i have been lately.

I can't SSH in so it's probably the hosting provider that shut it down.
