Hello!

We've been having some serious issues with one of our servers and as a consequence, both this site and the mailing lists have been misbehaving (stuff like new registrations not working properly). More recently we've experienced a complete downtime of both the site and the mailing lists, but these issues should be fixed now.

I apologize for all the inconvenience and I'm hoping nothing like that will happen again; it's not the first time we've had similar issues with this server though, so we're looking into migrating it to a new machine. We'll inform about any expected downtime in due time.

Sorry again and best regards,

David.

Thank you David for your post.
I have just posted a message about my experience with the forum and in it I asked for explanations to the problems I had to solve.
Your message has given me the answers I needed.
I'm curious about when did the problems begin.
Could you please expand about that?
Thank you in advance.

Thanks for your understanding.
Even though the actual downtime for the web server started during the weekend, one of the underlying problems with missing e-mails from the system (causing for instance problems with the registration process) started quite a bit earlier than that.
Diagnosing has been a bit complicated because several causes contributed to these issues and even now we haven't been able to fully address one of them.
