Rootsweb temporarily down

The Rootsweb website (www.rootsweb.ancestry.com), including  all of the mailing lists that it facilitates, is closed temporarily, with the homepage showing the following:

"We're currently experiencing a temporary website outage due to Rootsweb hardware failure. Rest assured, our development and web operations teams are busy working to securely restore the site as quickly as possible. Our initial expectation is to have the site back up and running on or around March 15, 2016. We apologize for the disruption and thank-you for your patience. We will provide other updates here as we have them."

(With thanks to Louise Gibson from Burnie, Tasmania, for letting me know)
