dot.kde.org: We are back!

You may have noticed that your beloved KDE news site experienced availability problems during the last two weeks. The reason for the outage was a scheduled server movement followed by some unscheduled problems. We hope to have everything under control again and would like to thank
Pierre-Emmanuel Muller
leVillage for hosting dot.kde.org and for helping us out with the recent problems.


Yes! And btw thank to all who are involved in keeping us informed! In particular big thanks to Navindra Umanee who did so much for dot.kde.org, not sure though if he is still involved?!

Heh, thanks for the thought. Still around but my internet access is rather spotty at the moment. I'm still in the background but letting others do most of the work. :-)

By Navindra Umanee at Wed, 2004/06/16 - 5:00am

... for being back!

I was really missing this great, indispensable news and community site.

The Dot and KDE-Forum are on the same server so kde-forum.org is back too!!!

Not to be "that guy", but any word on the dot.kde RDF feed?

By Ian Monroe at Wed, 2004/06/16 - 5:00am

Seems to be fine currently... any specifics?

By Navindra Umanee at Wed, 2004/06/16 - 5:00am

Don't know what the parent meant, and can't see how it is right now, but it used to be pretty empty, only containing titles. Not even teasers :-(

Yea, its working fine now, its coming up completely blank when I tried earlier today. Though it was from IE, so that might have being messing something up.

It looks like the issue I've actually been having is that http://dot.kde.org/rdf has news from a few weeks ago. I guess the feed was renamed, I fixed it now.

By Ian Monroe at Wed, 2004/06/16 - 5:00am

Is the RDF permanently moved to kde.org? If so, somebody needs to advise CowboyNeal (for Slashdot's dot.kde.org slashbox).

The old URL is supposed to still work for the sake of backwards compatibility. I'll take a look.

By Navindra Umanee at Thu, 2004/06/17 - 5:00am

I thought you were lost. Whew!

...thanks to some MySQL kung-fu from Christian Mueller.

By Navindra Umanee at Wed, 2004/06/16 - 5:00am

Perfect timing with my harddrive crash, I just got back online yesterday after a couple of weeks offline;)

By DiCkE at Wed, 2004/06/16 - 5:00am

u lucky basterd! i've been looking at this site every day, but it was down :(

By superstoned at Fri, 2004/06/18 - 5:00am

Goodness me. You can't not have KDE news!

By David at Wed, 2004/06/16 - 5:00am

dot.kde.org is back.
Well - you never know what you've got 'til it's gone they say.
Big thanks to everyone involved.

By Martin at Wed, 2004/06/16 - 5:00am

Where is dot.kde.org?
Do you have a link to the site?
