What the Hell Happened to Loompanics.com?

a few days ago, on September 3rd, we got our customary thirty daily hits. september 4th, we got zero, september 5th, we again get zero. So I jaunt over to their mostly-defunct site and find it blocked by a password prompt! What gives? Recently I have totally lost touch with all of their previous employees and have been seeking out some working contact information for any and all of them.

Anyone know what's going on?

Shoot an e-mail to lastwordbooks(at)yahoo.com

or sky.cosby(at)gmail.com

Thanks! Stay tuned for the continuing saga of the world's most clandestine book publisher, whose forces seem to have disappeared completely, never to be found.

{WTF? Now it's prompting here, even though I removed the link!}
*Update: Got that shitty bug fixed, it was lingering from an invisible link to Loompanic's logo that disappeared when their site went down. Whew. Only took me two days to figure out. Sorry to whichever anonymous reader's comment got obliterated while I fixed that.

They went out of business last year. Perhaps the website is being repurposed?

this has nothing to do with this post but. today i was smoking a cigarette outside the book store smoking a cigarette waiting to buy some weed watching a gray kitten attack nothing, when i see a book fly out the door and slide across the street. this was followed by about three more books and an agitated owner yelling about how they were all "shit". personally i believe it was a symbolic act of of transferment from the bookstore onto the books. or maybe he was drunk. who knows.
