no longer open-source?

It seems to me that the rewrite has completed as "asciiflow2" and that it is unfortunately not open-source any more!
how unfortunate.


Main site temporarily down

The following straight from Lewish, author of asciiflow (2014-01-20):

Sorry that the site is down, it's hard to deal with spikes of traffic like this without over provisioning!

Just thought I would chime in, I'm working hard on a complete re-write of ASCIIFlow, killing GWT and moving to canvas + JS while keeping the ASCII look and feel, adding tools to resize things, and making the canvas size infinite and most importantly, supporting mobile!

Please get in touch if you have requests.
