'big' re-direct foiled!

Nice Work Rainmeter Team!

Quickly shutting down the Rainmeter server and removing the 'big' redirect!
I thought my virus protection had failed... but then noticed it only affected the Rainmeter sites...

Another pea-brained, unloved, wannabe-wanker foiled... :twisted:

Think of it as a compliment: "The price for popularity!" :great:

The redirect was actually intentionally done by us. We switched to a better/bigger server (hence www-big.rainmeter.net) and the redirect was used to temporarily test the new server before switching over entirely. Sorry for the disturbance!

Good news then... an intentional redirect AND a bigger server! :thumbup:

No inconvenience, just a momentary "huh? what's that?" :)
