Thanks for getting things working again.

I think there may be a problem with the image upload function as it won't work for me- after selecting the file and clicking the upload button- a blank white screen appears, with 'Done' in the bottom left corner of OS explorer and nothing happens at all after.
I've been able to start a new thread with text, but not text and images.
:doh:

Hello everybody!
In time for the new year BOTH discs where damaged in the server.
As we have had many of those failures I took the decision to move to a new reliable hoster, also hosting the parent site maskinisten.net
We now got a second highend server for CMN with excellent backup and hoster-knowledge.

As we had high timepressure there are some settings to do, please continue to report any bugs you find! We will take care of the pic-upload problem asap.
Also, due to the timepressure to get the new server up and running, we will have to swap some hardware next week.
That will mean SHORT downtime several times.

Thank you everybody for your patience and sorry for the inconvenience!
I am sure the actions taken will reduce the risk for these damages in the future.

I also want to thank Christian for helping me!
