Tao Framework website vanished?

Does anyone know what's happened to the Tao Framework website (www.taoframework.com)? I've been getting a "Site Temporarily Unavailable" error anytime I try for the past week or so.

Sorry about posting this in the Open TK forums, but obviously, I can't access the Tao forums! :P

Admittedly, Tao has appeared to be pretty much dead for a while now, but there were at least some useful code samples in the forums I wanted to take a look at once I get back into Open GL programming, so I'm hoping the site isn't gone for good.

There are some code samples and tutorials in the CS-SDL repositories (CS-SDL uses Tao).

Looks like something in the webserver itself is borked; the domain hasn't expired and connections to the server work, so. If the site maintainer knows about it, they're probably trying to fix it, and if not... I don't see any email links on that site, and taoframework.com appears to have no mail server, so I dunno if there's much one can do.

Funny though, lack of good examples is one of the reasons I didn't like Tao... ;-) Maybe I just didn't mine the forums enough.

Eh, the "good examples" I'm talking about were things along of the lines of "this is how to do textures with Tao" and other simple stuff like that; I'm still a newb when it comes to Open GL! :)

Don't know if there was much that was useful for more experienced programmers....

I think you should embrace the Tao project. The Cg, SDL, FreeType bindings still need an upstream.

^ I've already got a better version of Tao.FreeType on my github account, wraps everything up in classes with properties and instance methods that follow standard C# naming conventions.

Quite awesome. I added this to my list at https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/pull/2408

Tao.FreeType → https://github.com/Robmaister/SharpFont
Tao.SDL → http://cs-sdl.sourceforge.net/
Tao.Cg → http://www.opentk.com/project/CgNet

Sounds like a plan :)
