Yes, it actually happened twice last December, I believe. The first time it took ~10 days to get the issue resolved. Unfortunately, the same issue popped up not too long after it was (supposedly) resolved but it was resolved more expeditiously the second time. Hopefully, it won't be too much longer before Joel can resolve the current (I'm assuming it's most likely the same) issue.DavidHB said:...there seems to be a problem with the downloads page. It is possible to download the stable build (220.127.116.113), but no other builds are listed. The last time something like this had happened, there was (I recall) a problem with SorrceForge, which Joel did fix.
Any chance we can get access the nightly builds while the website is being fixed?Joel said:This time it's due to our database... I can't bring the data out of the old server at the moment as data could have been compromised. I'd have to reset the necessary tables and bring it online only after the data has been verified.
I'll bump this with a "third". :wink:DavidHB said:
Could you give us a general idea of how much you need to raise to keep the Eraser programme running? It's not just server time of course, because I know that you ideally need to update your development tools.Joel said:Perhaps we can gather some feedback so that we can make better choices? For starters, how much would the community be willing to contribute to the running of the server? I do seem to recall there was a company hosting OSS projects' servers at no cost to the project but I can't remember their name (maybe someone here does?)
