Re: forums.rockbox.org is down.

It is a known issue. As has been said in IRC (the "main" day-to-day
communication method over the mailing list), the server hosting the
forums (among other services) has frequently been the victim of a
non-targeted denial-of-service attack for a couple of months now. It
typically is down for a couple hours a day (depending on when I am able
to catch that it has hung).

The server is mine and is in the process of being completely rebuilt
from the ground-up to fix this issue among other issues (it should be
quite the improvement). It may be a while yet though due to competing
priorities.

Pardon the dust.
