The forum was down in the last 16 hours because of a crashed database server and as a result a corrupted table afterwards, which couldn't be fixed remotely and (Murphy's Law) the support of our hoster had just closed.
Should you notice any problems, please let me know.
Sorry for the inconvenience!

During the outage I actually went over to the r.b.* newgroups to get my daily fix. (shutter!) :frightened:

We were down again - according to the hoster now it turned out that both database crashes were caused by a DDoS attack on the mySQL-Server.
They've taken steps to prevent this effectively for the future.
Again, sorry for the inconvenience!

The problem seems to be related with the script used to display the latest threads on the home page in combination with a bug/memory leak in mySQL.
