It was a server-problem so it was out of my or Dark Inca's control, and I have no idea in which datacenter BartVB keeps his server. But everything is fixed now, the remote powerswitch broke due to thunder.

But everything works, doesn't it? We should all thank Bart for fixing this while on his holiday in Norway!

I am dubious about the discussion value of this topic.

A It is up for me.
B I can connect to it
C It is ok for me

Would anyone mind greatly if this interesting discussion was closed?

Explain? How can thunder break a power switch? I'm curious as to what happened, so feel free to PM me. :)
