Your link to returns a 'server not found' error. The rosetta@home project has been effectively offline for a couple of days, though it isn't clear from your comment if it has any relationship to the downtime.

So far I've been unable to find any substantive news about what is going on, but if it is a DNS problem (per certain rumors) perhaps it might be possible to work around it? Map the hosts file to a specific IP address for a few days?

Not recommended, but you can add this to your hosts file to get to the main server. (Don't forget to delete it.)

That won't fix everything, but at least you can see the news and the forums, but right ow there is no news there.

Let me remind you again not to leave garbage in your hosts file.
