> [SOLVED] OESF SSL certificates now expired
Posted by Varti - 06-17-19 00:04 - 1 comments
Hi,

as you have noticed, the forum's SSL certificates have now expired and the forum is being probably blocked by your browser or antivirus program. I'm now getting in touch with our hosting provider, hoping that they'll fix this issue ASAP. In the meanwhile please disregard any security warning on this site until the issue will be sorted out, and sorry for any inconvenience.

Varti and the OESF team.

"CommunicAsia, 26th June 2018: Planet Computers today announces the Gemini PDA will feature Sailfish OS mobile operating system, developed by Finnish mobile company Jolla.

The long-standing partnership between the two companies means Sailfish 3 – the third generation of the open-source mobile operating system, based on the Linux kernel – is to be made available on the Gemini PDA.

The Gemini PDA is a quad-boot mobile device, capable of booting into Android OS as well as a number of Linux distributions – including Sailfish OS.

Sailfish X, the downloadable and official version of the OS, will be available in late 2018 and will feature a suite of advanced functions including: over-the-air (OTA) updates; Jolla Store access; end-user support; and crucially for Gemini users, full support for landscape user-interface (UI), encrypted user data and communications, Android app support and a refreshed user interface, with improvements like redesigned email.

In the meantime, Sailfish for Gemini Community Edition – a community supported version based on Sailfish OS 2.0 – is free and available to download now: http://support.planetcom.co.uk/index.php/SailfishOS

Gemini PDA is being showcased at CommunicAsia 2018 – Marina Bay Sands, Level 5, Stand 5L4-10."

> Server outage, forum now back online - EDIT
Posted by Varti - 02-15-18 05:24 - 13 comments
Hi,

as you probably noticed, the forum was offline for the past ~18 hours. This outage was due to a problem on the hosting side, and it has affected other sites on the same server too. We are still waiting for a statement from our hosting provider explaining the reason for the outage, but at least the forum is back online. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and thanks for your patience.

EDIT: Unfortunately it seems I spoke too soon: some pages still show an error when they are opened, and they are successfully opened only after 3-4 attempts. According to a post by one of the hosting provider's admin, the problem seems to be caused by recent Google Warnings about malware on some of the sites hosted by them, and by the software they are deploying in order to improve the security.

I can assure you that OESF is malware free: we have registered it on the Google Search Console a year ago, and it currently reports that no malware can be found here. I often check the Security status there to verify that no malware has been installed in the meanwhile.

The situation is anyway getting better, and I hope that soon we won't have any more problems. As before, thanks for your patience.
