The problem seems to be more extended than previously expected: an hardware issue on our server produces random spikes and kernel panic which force brutal shutdowns of the system, causing - other than temporary unavailability of our web services - damages on database tables abruptly closed.
We are schedulating a massive migration for tomorrow, that will resolve in a long downtime. More news soon on the Arduino blog.

Say, the site was down again. Lefty, you forgot to burn the bootloader on your nano on time.

Maybe Lefty was burning a Mega this time.

No problems madbob, hope you're not pulling your hair out.
I noticed from the responses that there might have been a sql'ish problem as well.

Appreciate the work you do to keep the gears turning.

Hello madbob,
Please, let us know if there is something we can do/help. I understand maintenance meas resources, money. Sometimes a donation pot helps.

I hope the maintenance goes well.

I hope you will also seriously consider updating the SMF version to 2.0.4 while you have a good chance. 1.1.18 is years out of date.

Maintainance Downtime Scheduled for Thursday, 21 Feb - read here for more details
Is it just me or does anyone else also think that bold black with an underlined link would have been a better color option for the announcement?  It's at the top of the page if you missed it.

I need to squint and look sideways.

I looks important though, whatever it says  smiley-evil

Roberto, I just realised that 'maintainance' is spelled 'maintenance'

I wonder how many times I have misspelled it in the past then.

When are we going down, any clue for a UTC?

So about four hours from now then I am guessing?
It's 21h here, yay, in four hours I might be asleep, chuckle chuckle, oops, forgot about the my morning fix of Arduino  smiley-eek-blue

Say, Msquare, are you helping out with the upgrade?

Also, I notice that in my profile setting where I can set the time zone offset, it always wants to guess and does not want to keep the value I give it.
Especially as we have daylight saving time, it is out by one hour. I hope if you are going to version 2.x of SMF it will be fixed.

Bugger, sounds like you have experience with SMF forums.
Re-check my post above re time, is that a known problem?

oops, my mistake, I am confusing you with modeller, similar avatar colours, sorry, I must be blind  smiley-mr-green

Yes, I have a great deal of experience with SMF forums. The time offset seems to be working for me. I don't think that is an issue with SMF 1.1.18. But, there is another problem that the Admins haven't yet commented on - the irritating messages that you get when going back to your search results. On a forum like this, that really needs to get fixed. If people can't easily read all the results of a search, they'll simply just add more posts, of which there are enough already. Support for this version will be ending this year - support such as security updates.

If they are going down for a long maintenance task it would be the perfect time to upgrade the forum to SMF 2.0.4 - get it over with. It's free and shouldn't take all that long. I can't imagine why they wouldn't do it.

If they have any questions I'd be glad to answer them.
