The Portland Indymedia website is the most unreliable remaining US indy website. http://portland.indymedia.org/
It's up and down more than a yo-yo on acid.
And that's not counting the conspiracy crap infesting the wire.
Recently the site was down for almost a month. When it returned, allegedly around Aug 11th, there was this explanation: http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2015/01/428857.shtml

We had some heat exhaustion on computers running the site that us down for a few days. It is all cool now. Weather blows, but we keep going.
I don't think that's how it works. Any competent tech person would have the computers in a temperature and moisture neutral place ALL THE TIME.
But hey maybe they can hammer this out at their meeting this Saturday:
Usually held on 3rd Saturday of the month - (email PIMC to verify)
Next Meeting: 6:00 PM
Bipartisan Cafe 7901 SE Stark st.
Of course few people will know about it because as of this writing the wire is DOWN AGAIN. http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/portland.indymedia.org
Is portland.indymedia.org down?
It's not just you! portland.indymedia.org looks down from here.
They can't blame it on the weather now....
Maybe time to turn the sub domain over to someone who knows what they're doing.
Anyone know how long this 'yo-yo' has been going on?
be great if there was some announcement or something. so portland peeps know where to go....
also too for some reason the comment box has been completely hidden on yhe main article should look like http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:zcla60xOZzwJ:la.indymedia.org/news/2017/08/295643.php
now u have to manually type " _comment.php "
nice to know i guess
wonder if la imc is having site issues too
I seem to recall having trouble getting to the site some months ago (maybe as long ago as June or even May).
I hope their problems are resolved soon. That site has good content, and there are still active contributers.
I was there a few minutes ago and working. Hopefully it'll stay up.
where? and how? they can't keep content up for more than 3 nanoseconds!
and when they do its riddled with tinfoilhat crap.
