forum not there today?

was it just me or did the entire forum take the day off today?

No problems here!

Forum site gave me some error message this morning (your time). Tried several times.

I have been on all day, however, it seemed like their were less people then usual!

Today we had the second major outage in three days, this time worse than before due affected also the main site and triggered some collateral problem.

Cause of the issues has still to be found, but the two best candidates are 1) DoS attack from unknow source 2) major web traffic driven to the Arduino Blog (hosted on the same server of Arduino Forum)

August vacation of a sysadmin are not so relaxed...
