IGN Host File Changes (+ Null Speed boosts)
To view what is left of the old IGN vault add the folowing line to your "Hosts." file 
 
(For a standard Windows 7 Install: open C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts. with notepad)
 
To see the "relocated" vault add
 
69.10.25.55 nwvault.ign.com
 
To skip ign's failed attempts to look up missing files and screenshots, null the DNS lookup using:
 
0.0.0.0 vnmedia.ign.com
 
0.0.0.0 vnfiles.ign.com
 
And the "Legacy" IGN pages will then load up lightning fast...
 
(If IGN does actually restore the old vault, you will need to remove the above lines when they do...)

I thought that I should mention here that the NWVault is apparently going to come back up.  According to a note on the redirect page, the vault is undergoing maintenance and will be back up shortly.  Given some of the problems the site was having (according to the maintainer) it was probably overdue for maintenance.  Here's the note from the IGN wiki:

Neverwinter Vault Maintenance

The Neverwinter Vault is currently undergoing maintenance and the site is temporarily redirecting to this page. Apologies for the inconvenience -- we know Neverwinter Vault is an awesome resource and we're working to restore nwvault.ign.com as quickly as possible.

A little late, I suppose, but better late than never.
