Ah, the Renderosity site’s total outage (here in the UK and probably elsewhere) seems to be a DNS server problem. Switching from my ISP’s default DNS over to 184.108.40.206 (the Quad9 DSN) did nothing, same problem. But using Google’s own DNS at 220.127.116.11 got me through to Renderosity.
However, on going to get the new La Femme character from my shopping cart I had the message “Shopping Cart Items do not meet the Minimum Purchase Price of $3.50”, since her price was $0.00. I had no idea that there’s now a “Minimum Purchase Price”! When did that happen? So, it seems one can only get a free item if one first pays $3.50 for some other item. Which means it’s not actually free.
Well… I was going to download and do some nice demos and a test with La Femme, and post them in various places (including a magazine), telling people she was free. But she’s not free, so now that will have to be put on hold.
