    I'll bet it is; I'll bet as soon as they got the tests done they shut down the website so that people wouldn't order the wrong ones. I don't why the website morphed into this weird ad zone - thats what really alarmed me - I wondered if they were going out of business but I'll bet its the two new tests and my guess the CDC thing is just a coincidence.

    Its past 9 here - so it wasn't wait until business hours....god knows when anything is going to be put up.

    About the ads on their site.
    It's common that web designers put out a under construction site when they are working on a site. On that it may or may be ads, depending on types of hosting, and how it's done.

    What's uncommon is to put out such a site when doing construction on medium to large sites.

    The reason why it came is most likely because the web designers chose to do it when they did some updates. I don't think it was a deliberate thing from anyone who's working at the lab. And I doubt they were asked or informed when the ads came.

    Since we have a past high of over 200 posts while WAITING, I figured I needed to add.

    I PM's Parvo but he must be busy sniffing out some scintillating tidbit to post.

    Anyone else heard from Parvo???

    It is common that businesses that go out of business end up with a Google ad site (like the one VIPdx had, only without under construction written).

    It often happens when the hosting time runs out, and they don't pay the bill.

    Does the good old British expression 'Couldn't organise a *iss up in a brewery' ring true?

    I just called them and Jessica, who answered the phone at VIP Dx, did not know when they would actually post the announcement - nor what the announcement was. :confused: So much for the direct approach.:tongue:

    My money is on them announcing a new website. But not really.

    I agree - they probably had no idea. Shoddy stuff from their web designers, though - that doesn't happen much anymore but I think you must be right.

    We definitely rely on the Brits for good color commentary.

    I think you need to go to the South here to get real color; I love this one I read in Clinton's autobiography "I wouldn't piss in his ear if his brain was on fire"

    If you completely take down all of your website content, temporarily, then don't some website hosts just put some of their own content in the blank space?
