Turned off Account Registratio
In the last year or so the only new accounts have been made by spammers. I have turned off (I think?) account registration except by Sysops. If any genuine user wishes to register an account then contact tux at the OESF forums. It is still possible to register an account there.Tux 18:55, 13 June 2012 (EDT)
Site is back at http://www.oesf.org/forum/. Ibiblio is having issues right now. Here is their official response regarding the issue:
9/28/07 update from Ibiblio.
"We have tickets open with both the hardware vendor and OS support company right now, and we've got some potential workarounds that we plan to try next week. In the meantime I'd say just run anything you're not sure of by us before making a change. If you haven't heard back from us by Wednesday of next week, give us a shout?"
If you haven't already, check them out at http://www.ibiblio.org. They have some amazing stuff they host all for free.
"You're seeing an interesting NFS issue that we haven't seen before. Not a major cause for concern, though. We're consulting with the hardware vendor and will have a response to you directly once we're sure of the root cause. Things to remember: * your data is backed up off-site nightly * your data is stored on redundant physical media for high availability * the hardware vendor gives us good support which we pay for * the hardware vendor is well-respected in the industry We're confident we'll have this worked out soon. :) "
Ibiblio has been very good to us so we'll stick by them as they work on this. For now, continue to browse using the forum without an s URL. -- dz
