Default Vassal Problems

I decided I wanted to play a quick(is there such a thing?) game of 40k, but since it was in the evening, I decided I'd go on Vassal for a game. I throw in my flash drive, start up Vassal as I have before, and I get an error. "No problem" I say to myself, "I'll just re-download it."
I go to this site, look up the initial Vassal thread in this very forum, click the link. Lo and Behold, I get an error to the page. Concerned, I look around for the module link and find that also gone. Has Vassal gone the way of the DoDo? Or am I just Vassaly challenged?

Looks like the whole site is down.
Kinda sucks imo, but it might just be routine maintenance.

It is an online program that allows you to play games such as 40k and Risk VIA the net.

Surprised Games Workshop hasn't shot it down yet.

There's nothing they can really do AFAIK. It doesn't provide rules or give out copyright information(unless you consider which units fall under what FoC slot), it just gives you models in the form of little images and a board to play on, as well as some dice. And a bit of terrain.

Where it really shines(in my eyes) is the modularity of it. It can cover a wide variety of games, or it can be used to make scenarios, or test out armies without having to paint/buy them. Say you're dirt poor because college takes all your money(like me), and you want to know if you should buy a unit of sniper drones. You have a list read, find a game and play on Vassal. Or you want to look for another army, but are unsure how they play. You try out 'Nids, and find you don't like them. Rather than shelling out tons of cash for a 400-500pt game, you simply click/drag in a game.

Thanks so much!

I just played my first game. Got completely annihilated. Lost every unit.

Tau vs Mobilized Guard, with Grenadiers doctrine.... Chimeras with Stormies.
