Yes, we're back ^^

We've gotten ourselves a shiny new server at a new datacenter, replacing our previous one which was lost when our hosting company went bankrupt.

Just a few days before our server was taken offline without any warnings, Res made a complete site and database backup, which I am now installing on our new server.

We should have a rock stable system now, with much better hardware, including an Intel Xeon CPU, twice the RAM capacity, a nice RAID1 setup to prevent data loss due to broken harddrives, and a connection which should be much faster than before. Additionally, the new datacenter is one of the biggest in the EU.
This means we've got very effective protection against all that went wrong with our previous server (disk failure, faulty ram, disappearing datacenter, ...)  :)

I'm working on getting the last parts of the site online as I'm typing this. As we've moved from a FreeBSD box to a Debian server, certain parts of the site might need some small recoding to make them work again. Changing avatars is one example.

Most downloads should be online again. Any missing files will be uploaded soon.

Important: Premium accounts are now available again. If you've lost your premium status due to the downtime, or bought a premium account and it was never activated, message me and I'll fix it.
