Awesome thank you, yes now when I google the old link it redirects to here and also if you just type saafe into google search it now comes here too.

Thank God!  ;D

And apologies for the non SW related thread, I was seeing tumbleweed for a moment there...

I've merged this with the news thread so hopefully more people will spot it. It can come down once we're all sorted :).

For a variety of reasons, we have moved the forum to a new server.

Where Ian says 'we', I should point out that the full extent of my participation was sitting on my arse eating bombay mix watching tthe Sopranos and occasionally clicking on a link when asked ;D

Plus demanding various things that meant it had to be moved in the first place! ;D

You might find that recent email notifications have ended up being treated as spam by Gmail etc.

The address they're 'from' was changed and has just been changed again to something that various email services will (should!) be less fussy about.

We've had some problems with GoDaddy changing where saafe.info points to and taking far too long to point it back to the right place.

They still haven't told us that they have done so and it's only through looking at the server directly that I see it's back now. Depending on just what tries to save a few milliseconds by remembering where things were earlier, it may still be unavailable via some networks for a while.

Don't use GoDaddy. As soon as we can stop doing so for the last bits that give them the power to do this, we will.

They'll be some 'scheduled downtime' later today to implement something.

It didn't take very long when tested elsewhere, but here has rather more posts...

Two more bits of downtime - a couple of minutes each - recently thanks to a couple of security updates that needed a server reboot and annoyingly weren't released at the same time...

You may or may not have noticed a large number of 'guests' viewing the board: they topped out at 3,622 in fifteen minutes.

As a consequence everything was running very slowly today.

Looking, it appears that most of them were bots using Chinese-related software and servers. They've been blocked and while they're still trying, everything should go back to normal... until the next swarm, anyway.
