Hi Vicky!

Yes, the lists are down ... we were about to migrate them to squeak.org
servers but then had to do a server migration here too so it fell through
the cracks it seems.

The website/showcase is somewhat broken right now and cannot really be used
for sharing projects. You can still download projects and run them locally,
but upload and browsing from within Etoys does not work.

I haven't spoken to Timothy in a while but AFAIK he doesn't have the time
to fix it.

We are working on a new Etoys release based on squeak.org since
squeakland.org has no active developers left anymore. Hopefully this will
be able to connect to a new project repository, but we have no timeframe
for that yet. In the mean time it's probably best if you host and share
your projects by some other means.
