Faclair Beag question

Wondering if Faclair Beag is down today. I haven't been able to access it since yesterday evening. I realize the problem might be that I'm in Minnesota (US) and there is something else wrong between here and Europe. But it's such a good resource! Just thought I would check -- thank you. Valerie

Re: Lingua.guru beta test learning resources

Well -- that was fun! I did the whole table - in one go - not one preposition at a time - and it really showed up my knowledge gaps. Also I left the slider positioned in the middle. Looks like everything works, except I got this error message for e+aig. I entered aige - but it was noted wrong. So I ...
