2014-08-25 moved to new server

In the past few days moved to a new server. All services except SMTP are now also available via IPv6. Thanks to Imre Kaloz for hosting on for several years. Thanks also to Imgtec / PRPL for sponsoring the new machine!

2014-04-12 CVE-2014-0160 on

Until 2014-04-08 was running an OpenSSL configuration vulnerable to the Heartbleed CVE-2014-0160 bug. The issue has been fixed and all affected SSL keys and certificates have been revoked and replaced. The use of SSL encrypted services on is optional; all services are also available via the traditional unencrypted HTTP protocol. As such only paranoid users, users of's HTTP services and users that are using the same password on other sites are recommended to change their passwords. Access to's crown jewels such as the git source archives was not affected by the Heartbleed issue.

2013-10-29 MIPS(r) P5600 Superscalar Multiprocessor Core Family

The MIPS P5600 processor IP core is the first member of the Warrior generation of MIPS CPU cores from Imagination Technologies. It delivers industry leading 32-bit performance with class-leading low power characteristics, and in a silicon footprint up to 30% smaller than comparable alternatives in the industry. The P5600 CPU core was designed for the performance and features required for tomorrow's mainstream connected consumer electronics including smartphones, tablets, connected TVs and set-top boxes. However, the rich and broad feature set extends applicability into a variety of networking applications, from residential gateways to network appliances and microservers.
