    You make a good point Rupert! Redirecting the URL somewhere should have been the thing to do whatever the circumstances, I mean it wouldn t be that expensive

      You make a good point Rupert! Redirecting the URL somewhere should have
      been the thing to do whatever the circumstances, I mean it wouldn't be
      that expensive and they can't be THAT broke! I bet I could make a very
      fancy page like that in well under 1k, so even bandwidth can't be an

      I'm wondering if they aren't looking for a buyer
      desperately at the last minute, or maybe they really are just
      relocating the servers etc and making a right hash of it!

      I like Revver tho and don't want to talk them down. It was my favourite
      online video service and I never understood why they couldn't get the
      support they needed.

      This has made me think tho, that there must be a lot of very vulnerable
      web companies out there and what is going to happen to them in the
      current economic situation?

      In fact other than youtube and myspace which video companies are backed by large entities?

      How bloody difficult is it to put up a "Revver is undergoing

      maintenance" page.

      You do it if you're offline for an HOUR, let alone a week.

      They must be unable to pay their bills and have been cut off.

      The story they told Andrew Baron doesn't ring true at all.

      But you'd think to back it up they'd at least redirect their domain

      to a single holding page somewhere, on someone else's server. Not to

      do so smells of self-pity and despair. Like they're just walking away.

      Who'd use them after this?

      With this kind of behaviour, they're begging to go bust.
