Notice: maintenance work will take place during the morning (approx. 1000 CEST), during which the website will not be available.


Date: 29.7.20@2027 CEST
Notice: due to ISP connectivity issues, the website was unavailable from roughly last midnight to now. The IP was subsequently changed to 77.56.129.162.


Date: 7.5.20@1203 CEST
Notice: due to the previous complaint, the ISP had cut the Internet access until the situation was resolved. To prevent future censorship from any party, The Swiss Bay will slowly be transitioning to more resilient networks.

Detailed information about this change will arrive in due time.


Date: 7.5.20@1200 CEST

Date: 13.5.18@1220 CEST
Notice: maintenance work will take place some time during the day, during which the website will not be available. This notice will be appended by an update once the job is done.

Update 13.5.18@2320 CEST: maintenance work is done and the site is operational again.


Date: 5.3.18@2115 CEST
Changes:


Date: 12.12.17@1729 CEST
Notice: the maximum upload rate (i.e. download rate for users) has been set to 25Mbps globally. Our new WAN link grants us greater bandwidth.


Date: 12.12.17@1726 CEST
Notice: the upstream provider changed its IP allocation scheme without prior warning, resulting in invalid IP configuration on our side. The previous IP address (84.72.152.153) was changed to another one (77.56.134.244). This unexpected change is to be considered normal.


Date: 16.9.17@1434 CEST
Changes:


Date: 5.9.17@0055 CEST
Notice: the website will be unavailable for some time during the day because of maintenance work on electrical installations. This is planned to happen every 6 months.

Update 6.9.17@1722 CEST: all services are now available again. Many backend components were also migrated to a new infrastructure, hence the rather long downtime. In the future, this should not last more than 30 minutes.


Date: 30.8.17@0105 CEST
Notice: the maximum upload rate (i.e. download rate for users) has been set to 10Mbps globally in order to prevent the WAN link from becoming too slow or even unresponsive due to ISP throttling.


Date: 10.8.17@0120 CEST
Notice: during the last two days, there have been periods during which the website was unreachable. This is due to hardware upgrades that aim to improve the internal network with respect to stability and performance. More connectivity losses are to be expected in the near future.


Date: 16.6.17@2030 CEST
Notice: at around 1800 CEST, a power outage has occured. The UPS currently in use can provide current for a few hours, depending on the load. As the upstream issue has not been resolved yet, there is a chance the webserver will be powered off (and hence the website will be unavailable). This is expected to last a few hours, if not more. An update will be posted here when the situation changes.

Update 17.6.17@0250 CEST: input from the power company was OK but HPC fuses were blown on all phases, hence cutting power to anything. The server likely shut down around 2130 CEST. The cause of the issue remains unknown but since 0240 CEST power is back (at least for now).
