that's funny:
everytime they try to upgrade something (see old yabb to new SMF forum) goes wrong (hoster, software or hardware problems)..

anyway i think (hope) the arduino team is working hard for fixing this problem  ;)

Hej guys,

I am sorry for the silence when it comes to this ... we have been very busy with the server upgrade, implementing  a new backup system, etc. This issue has of course priority and we will try to fix it during today.

Again, I am really sorry for the inconvenience and I should be the one to blame for this ...

If it helps in any way, thing is you guys were lasting an 8 cores computer to the point that it was impossible to even list a directory, therefore we had to make sure we had a proper machine to run the forum before we could go into fixing mode.

Things will be much much better from now on.

Just out of curiosity, what are the specs of the new machine. Hardware, file-systems, OS ...
• Upload doesn't work? Do a loop-back test.
• There's absolutely NO excuse for not having an ISP!
• Your AVR needs a brain surgery? Use the online FUSE calculator.
My projects: RGB LED matrix, RGB LED ring, various ATtiny gadgets...
• Microsoft is not the answer. It is the question, and the answer is NO!

Connection Problems

Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.

A dozen times tonight. A week after the upgrade.

Have you considered changing to more competent service providers? Seriously.
Please post technical questions on the forum, not by personal message. Thanks!

Thank you Nick for speaking out what I was thinking all through this European Morning.......
