It's down

  1. Mar 10, 2008 #1
    The overview is down. It fails to fetch the news from an external site. Eventually I managed to access PF through:


    €: I admit, I'm probably not the only one who must have noticed it.

    What I suggest tho, is that you make the overview not rely on the rss feed. Fetch the feed on a regular basis with a cronjob and load the content from your local db, so it will not break the forums, in case the feed is down.

    PF was down? Based on the time of posts here, it coincided with an internet outage on campus here...maybe it was more than just a campus issue (we did have our intranet up, but nobody could access any outside sites).

    It was only the main page, you could still access all of the forums by using the "forum Jump".
