It was quiet an astonishing Year for us with the opening of Digital-Seas in July. We’ve made lots of contacts, had many good reports and of course also lot’s of problems around technic and content.
Almost 2000 registered users in a couple months, changing twice the servers because of the load and setting up a dozen antennas ourselfs made us busy beside the regular job workload.

Making this a free resource feels good and we would like to thank for all comments and help with the portal. Especially the sharers and the image supporters should be named, but also every user, who is spreading the word.
2008 will bring many extensions and hopefully also much more coverage of AIS positions!

We had again a downtime of our servers this morning, after getting hacked. This happend twice over the last week, so we did some real log-research and found reasons. A bug in the open source software “cacti”, used for statistical monitoring, made it possible to compromise the server and kept our admin busy for a couple hours. Read the story about “zombies” here (sorry, only in german)
We’ve been online again since 11:00.
