The annual registration renewal date of Ruud's Sudocue site is coming up on 21 December. It's still up (as of this posting), but it's anyone's guess as to whether he'll continue to renew it. If you haven't already, you might want to save whatever you want from that site before the 21st, just in case.

If it is renewed, it may need cleaning up, as if you search for anything on google about sudocue.net e.g. sudocue assassin or anything else on that site, sudocue.net's links always redirect to malicious fake search engines

such as resonly and polysearch (Don't visit either website as you will infect your computer)

I just went there again today. The main Web site is still up (for who knows how much longer), but the forum section gives errors. They are probably fixable, but my guess is that Ruud hasn't even looked there in years and won't bother to fix it. Hopefully everyone snagged everything they wanted from that forum before it went down.

Sadly, the Sudocue site is nothing but a blank page now. I see that I last checked it exactly a year ago today. :cry:

Two years on, and the Sudocue site is up again (no longer being updated, no new puzzles), but the forums are long gone.

Just over five years since the first post in this thread. All of the site seems to be viewable again, although no new material is being added. If you were registered for the forums before Ruud's disappearance, it appears that you are still able to log in and post, but no new users have been able to register in the past ten years. It does appear that someone (Ruud, or someone acting on his behalf) returned in 2016 to clean things up, restore the site, and update the copyright notice. If nothing else, the site is still useful as a source of sudoku information, and the puzzles are still available to those who haven't yet completed them all.
