FTDI where are you?

Did FTDI go out of business or is their website just down? I've been trying 
all day.

Thanks for checking that Jim, but it's still not working for me. Every other site I go to is. Strange, I didn't think the Internet was discriminatory :) Thomas

Hmmmm... I just sent them an order 30 mins ago, and I see the domain as down also. I'm in Australia, where are you Thomas? Best I send the message via one of their satellite domains.

for email only. I know sales people in Easysync, and they are in the same building (in Scotland), so they can duck any emails across to them, as they have done in the past. :-) FTDI, Easysync, USB Instruments, Vinculum, all the same family business.

Same problems with wwe.ftdichip.com here in Oregon. I was able to get to an online store by clicking links at http://www.vinculum.com/products.html I suspect that FTDI is in the middle of a reorganization of their online presence, and the DNS updates are not yet complete. Mark Borgerson

No response from here (UK). As someone else said, DNS propagation, maybe... give it 24hrs. Steve http://www.fivetrees.com

I briefly got on to their home page this morning. Super slow, barely functioning. While I wait... does anyone have any experience with their FT2232D chip? We are looking to use it to do some FIFO dumps and some bit banging. How are the API's to deal with? Thomas
