    Server outage September 13th

    Hi all.

    As you may have noticed, the form have been down for a few hours.

    Still not clear why, but we believe the automated backups was causing it... On top of that, GG´s mailserver and their RRS feeds was down too, so it turned out that they had not recieved my SOS emails

    Anyway, we´re back up and running, and will be looking into the cause ASAP.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I emailed Martijn about it earlier. We concluded it was Alex' fault.

    Yes, this forum creates a autosave of everything you type every 60 seconds... so just go back to what ever you were writing on

    On a more serious note:

    It turned out to be a Memory Leak, which we still don´t know what caused, but at least it seems like GG have it under control now... Will keep you updated when I know the cause, and can take measures to prevent it from happening again.

    Well Revit has had memory leaks in the past, maybe it is influencing the servers?
