Possible temporary availability interruptions

[Warning] We need to change the firmware for our aggregation switch and replace all the top of rack switches. It can be bumpy ride today and tomorrow.

Edit 4.07.2018 15:00 CEST:
Maintenance work and replacement of equipment completed. Everyone on links faster than 100Mbps should notice much better download speeds, especially during the peak hours.

Edit 4.07.2018 22:00 CEST:
For tomorrow, we plan to increase the available network throughput per every rack to make the download speeds even more bulletproof during the peak hours – this time it will be possible to do so without any downtime. Let speed be with you! :-)

Aaaand… it’s done! :-)

    How many people work on this site? I feel like its ran by one guy but that would make no sense to manage all these servers yourself.. unless the websites ran by one guy but you outsource the managing of the server to the datacenter?

      I checked your IP address – it was not banned. You should be able to use the website without any restrictions.

      Malaysia<>Europe is quite far away, so the slowdown may happen, this is not something we have control over.

    Was there any recent change on your end?
    The speed remains great but it takes a very looong time until a download starts after clicking a link… noticed this behavioir since quite a while now….

    Is there any way for us to give you donations or something? This website is really useful and it has been great all this time. You do deserve a reward or something for this great work!

      We observe a small congestion of our network during peak hours at the weekend. At the moment, however, we do not plan to add new network capacity, as problems occur quite sporadically.

    It looks like everyone in the UK is getting 403s, and it’s not ISP blocking. Apparently a few people have raised tickets but haven’t got a response. What’s going on?

    Total radio silence on the UK 403 issue. Come on guys, give us SOMETHING, an entire country can’t access you!
