no contact two days in a row

today and yesterday, around noon to almost two in the afternoon
(European Central Time) it was impossible to get to the forum via
HHTP or NNTP…additionally all contact via a browser to
opensuse.org and novell.com was impossible…

today, i did a traceroute which ended with a “firewall didn’t
respond” in Irving California…

what is going on in California about 03:00 local time??

or, anyone else seeing/having the problem?

I found HTTP access very very VERY slow in Europe, from around 12:00noon (Berlin time) yesterday to about 8:00pm (Berlin time) yesterday evening. Then things started speeding up again. It was a holiday in Germany yesterday, so thats why I noticed. Today its been too busy at work for me to notice.

But yesterday it gave me a good excuse to completely ignore the forums, and work on the Japan vacation home video (with kdenlive) that I promised the wife 10 months ago that I would do. :slight_smile:

My understanding is that there were some router failures in Provo, UT, USA
where the servers reside that took some time to repair. Sorry for the
inconvenience.

stuff…EVEN openSUSE…

At that time I reinstalled Suse 11,1 64-bit and after finished installing the second time I had no problem to browse in Opensuse forum and I believe Vancouver Canada your area is the same time.
