Blog from November, 2015

On Thursday 26 November 2015 between 07:00 and 08:00 local Bremen time servers and network components will be updated.

Server and network operations will be unreliable. Expect unavailable servers and sudden downtimes of services without prior explicit announcement.

If you have to work on files stored on the server during that time, then before the maintenance hour copy the respective files to your local hard disk, work on it locally, and after finishing your work and after the end of the maintenance interval, copy them back onto the server.

For more details on the maintenance hours see the Maintenance Hours page.

There is a new uprise of fraud telephone calls in Germany posing as computer support from 1&1, Apple or Microsoft, in English or German. The callers "offer" to remove malware, get your computer repaired or optimized, and request remote access or want you to install software, for free or not.

Do not accept this unsolicited "offer", which is an attempt to install malware on your computer, steal your data, get money from you, and make the world a worse place to live in.

Just hangup and carry on. As usual, do not give your accountname or password to anyone, nor give credit card details.
