Due multiple unprovoked DDOS attacks, our entire service was offline for almost a week. We are very sorry about such an extended downtime, especially since we take such great care to provide a reliable service to our users. Since our homepage was also affected, let us remind you of our Twitter handle and Facebook page, which are especially useful in such circumstances.

Almost all services have been restored and we are now operating normally. The new infrastructure is running stable, even if work remains to be done. Still missing are HTTP-related services directly handled by our XMPP server (Webpresence and XMPP over BOSH, both rarely used) and IPv6. We are still working on making our setup more robust, so there may be minor outages in the near future.
