We just renewed our SSL certificate, that might have a bearing here.

I recommend clearing the browser cache for any NG cookie. You will need to log in again.

Running the command ipconfig /flushdns (Windows) usually helps as well.

To quickly dump the cache on most browsers try (clicking an open area of your browser, i.e. not with the focus on a dialog box)...

(Command/Control) + Shift + (Delete/Backspace)

Take care to only delete or clear the cache and not your passwords or other items you might wish to retain.

Hope this works for you

This probably does not work with Safari.

[Maybe dump cookies? Probably not all.]

Today. Very slow connection, with time-outs.

09:45 BST very slow responses

Initially,  took an age to load
Then connection timed out

It eventually reloaded.

We experienced a hiccup leading to connection time-outs this morning, which apparently was solved after I rebooted the server.

Do note NG will move to another hosting provider by 25 October, 2023, and we hope this move also squashes the annoying connection time-outs and response slowness we have seen in the last months.

NG will be offline from 25 Oct. and hopefully accessible again at latest 1 November. However, we enter unchartered (to us) waters, so be prepared for unexpected contingencies.

Yes, good luck.  Such operational changes can be as they say "character building".   ;D

We are all crossing our fingers ;D  Thank you!

Birna already has a lot of character. Is it possible to have too much?  ;D

Thank you for all the work, Birna, and best of luck with the migration.

Good luck with the move!  I appreciate any efforts of the administrators to keep NG going.

The move is finalised, forum (with some caveats regarding Gallery) is working, DNS is pointed to the new domain.

I call it a day and hit the sack.

I could log in a while ago, but the log-in time was untimely out.

Since then, I haven't been able to log in for a while, but now I can.  Hope everything is going as planned!

My forum profile seems to have remained intact.  Only the "Look and Layout" has been reverted to the default setting.
