I checked in with Jonathon Green, who sends along this message:

"My apologies to everyone who may be wondering as to the status of GDOS.
Quite simply it crashed last Thursday and despite the best efforts of my
techspert it remains dark. Rebooting the server solves the problem but only
for a matter of minutes. Then another crash. It’s written on a subset of
Python which seems to defeat all those who look at it. If anyone feels that
they might be able to help I would be vastly grateful. In the meantime I am
at jgslang at gmail.com and more than happy to answer any questions. The
research database is unaffected."
