Forum Instability

Apparently, the hoster where this machine is running, is facing some DDoS attacks, causing the forum to be slow or not responding at some times. The hoster is working on rerouting traffic for the affected IP's, which is taking some time. The responsiveness and availability should improve over time.

Most of the instability dissipated for now. Apologies for the inconvenience experienced.

OK, weekend means the script kiddies are on the move again. Also today, we have seen several reboots of the server.

It shouldn't be that neighbouring hardware is impacting the server, but unfortunately it appears to be so. The hoster is still working on it, and it appears to be already better then yesterday. Not perfect yet though....

The hoster says the instability is now gone. Let's hope so :roll:
