Hi everyone,

The pubgrid is gone. Shut down.

Since nobody has written an explanation yet, let me be the one to do it:

In the last few months the pubgrid has gained some unwanted attention, notably
by hackers who started to post database dumps of hacked sites, hacking tools,
etc. on the grid.
> <zooko`> I don't want to be associated in terms of publicity, and I don't want to get associated in terms of receiving collateral damage from the belligerents.
For this reason Zooko has pulled the DNS entries for the grid. This means that
both the webinterface and the introducer won't be reachable anymore.

I would like to thank everyone who helped run the pubgrid.
