Re: What happened to PEAT?

The site appears to be alive and well today. PEAT can be found here: http://trace.wisc.edu/peat/

Glad to see that it did not disappear without a TRACE - that was my bad pun for the day.

Subject: Re: [WebAIM] What happened to PEAT?

Birkir, within the last 2 years I have coached a project team to use PEAT, so I know the link was still viable in 2013, but today I can't get anything from that subdomain—trace.wisc.edu—to load. So it seems the problem isn't limited to the tool.

I found mentions of the TRACE Center all over the University of Wisconsin website. None of the links pointing to the trace.wisc.edu subdomain work. It doesn't seem to be link rot; it seems to be a server crash or the like.
