AVRfreaks will experience some downtime on Saturday, oct.17, 13:00-14:00 CET, due to scheduled maintenance.

All the best,
staff.

[eivind, I've made this a sticky announcement - I'll undo it after the event - cliff]

[as the event has now passed this thread is broken loose from "announcement" status...]

The sky is falling! The sky is falling! Quick, someone mirror the site so we don't all get withdrawal symptoms!

Any chance of preventing the daily 9:00-9:15 downtime?

Which timezone are you in? I'm guessing 09:00 is sometime on the middle of the night for the civilized world :lol:

It's GMT+10 here. Before our daylight savings switch a week ago the downtime was from 8:00-8:15 each day, which wasn't a drama. Now it's at 9:00-9:15, which is right before my morning classes when I really want to check out the latest posts.

I think I'm an addict; you never appreciate how much you use something until it stops working. When it's broken, of course, you then spend the downtime compulsively mashing the refresh button until all's well again.

Pity the downtime is short - that means no major improvements. Probably just a shift between physical servers.

It's at midnight local time Trondheim, Norway.

[:wink:]I'm really impressed if you manage to migrate to, and deploy, the new AVRFreaks in one hour, but I am looking forward to it all the same. Can't wait to try out the "stoplist" features.. [/:wink:]

An hour....

Perhaps not enough time to bring up the re-vamped Forum, but certainly enough time to add an XMega section :wink:

In one hour they probably just have time to change the fuse in the plug ;-)

Anyway I hope the "maintenance" does not change this forum to the Atmel Qtouch forum style.

Struth...it takes a day or 2 before whatever you post comes up in the forum, everything posted must be checked by the ASS (Atmel Secret Service :? not relation to the Assembler Secret Society)

Nothing like what happens here with almost instant replies. What's going to happen to the poor people from some parts of the world that MUST have a reply NOW? No THIS IS URGENT!!!! posts there.

Don't get carried away, guys. There's nothing new for the site :) Just the IT guys taking out their boxes for some unconnected cuddle.

Damn and blast! Well that's it, show's over guys. No more conspiracy theories.

Eivind: any chance of some pictures of the Atmel/AVRFreaks datacenter? Also, will you be doing any more AVRFreaks episodes, or are we stuck with the (admittedly very professional) guy on the latest episodes?

Dean,

I think you'll find that the whole of avrfreaks.net and atmel.com is running on this:

Both wrong. Below are images of current config, and the one that is upgraded to.

EDIT: This message should not be interpreted as a statement of discontent with the performance of AVRfreaks. I just joined the "funny pictures" game. :-)
