2012-03-03 • Server migration completed

globe Our server migration took place this weekend (2012-03-02 until 2012-03-04) and is now completed. All services should be up and running again.

2012-02-04 • Server migration

globe We currently plan an extensive migration of our server infrastructure. In effect, the domains "lenge.de" and "photoss.de" might be not fully functional (or even completely inaccessible) for some time. Of course we aim to have it up and running again as soon as possible, but we cannot guarantee a certain date.

We will not start the process before Saturday (2012-02-11). If you plan any downloads or want to contact us by email, you might want to do so until Friday (2012-02-10).
