Sorry for the down time

jsmorley » October 25th, 2014, 6:55 pm

We have been down for a couple of days due to a hardware issue at our hosting company. We have had to more or less "rebuild" the server from scratch and our backups, and it did take some time.

Sorry for the hassle, please let us know if anything doesn't work as expected on the main site, the documentation, or here in the forums.

It happens. Almost every site faces problems.

I have noticed that Rainmeter 3.2 release notes are missing from the main page.

And it seems that it is not possible to download Rainmter from the mirror (builds.rainmeter.net), but it is minor problem while the main resource is up. Just for your information ;-)

Also on the main site, under 'News' the link to 'Rainmeter 3.2 Beta Available' is not working... gives '404 page error'

Glad to have you back! :great:

As a side note, nothing really too problematic to solve, I found at least one difference in the forum feed.

I'm using one of my skins to receive updates on the forum posts, now seems that something has changed in the feed, I can have all the informations as before but the name of who posted it.

I still have to investigate...

Oh, I forgot to say thank you for all your hard work! :D
