Checking - Site back up?
ouch - wonder what happened.
The “Admin Team” links are also not working from the TUD main page.
But most of the “forums” portion of the site appears functional now.
I think that my password was wiped out, and finally just now TuD has accepted a new one.
Me too, had been having problems, ok now. I put a new password in.
Apparently they wanted to fix something security related and messed up the whole site.
forum seems to be working as of now…
We should be all good now. Still working on some things but the site is functional now.
My withdrawal symptoms should subside any moment…
Yes, they did at least remove the insecure HTTP communication they were using before. Now it is running with HTTPS which means they are encrypting traffic between the browser and the website.
But they are still using TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 for browser compatibility reasons. No reason. Chrome v30 and up, Firefox v27 and up, and IE v11 and up all support TLS 1.2.
I guess the only reason they are keeping TLS 1.0 is for the people using Windows 98 or XP.
Support for TLS 1.0 should be removed. That version of TLS is vulnerable to attacks like BEAST (Browser Exploit Against SSL/TLS), which can be used to decrypt secure HTTPS communication.

there was a chat room that we were all able to get into and its not there…so the forums must be working but not the chat
It’ll be back in a while
Chat is back!
Logging in again can take awhile. Like figuring out how much insulin you’ll need before going to Chuck E Cheese.
Putting a note on the homepage wasn’t an option? After 24 hours or so I started to wonder if maybe the whole organization was kaput.
Yes, the people who worked the IT and coding for the communities and Discourse during migration left a big mess in the backend, now paying (literally) the consequences. We expect more backend updates, but no major outages like the one this week. We now can say “We have an IT guy on call”.
Honestly, we never thought it would take so much time to be back online.
