Hi :)
If it is a completely independant forum and one that is owned by the community could we just copy 
it and host on TDF or LO servers?  Alternatively might they be in a better position to ask Apache 
to host it or donate a better server to them?  or could TDF donate a better server to them?  There 
are neutral 3rd parties such as "Friends of OpenDocument", ODFAuthors, OASIS.  

I can't believe they and everyone else considers the pages hold are so worthless that they still 
haven't been able to gather support.  

Do they use "Creative Commons" or other copy-left licenses or would they be annoyed if we just 
copied the whole lot onto somewhere safer?  

Regards from 

Tom :)

This is just to reply to Jim's initial problem with the oooforum website.

Jim I am getting likewise no response to the web page, so similiar to 
other respondents, it seems to be down, or as indicated unstable. This 
could be currently an unmaintained server, or one with a low priority of 
whoever is supposed to maintain it, or the hosting co. is not offering a 
good level of maintenance, but all supposition. It trace routes fine 
from my country in an average of 300 to 400 milliseconds, so it is 
reachable, but the actual html or whatever being used for the web page/s 
seems to be the problem.

Undoubtedly you post with the best of intentions, but please stop
jumping in with confusing misinformation.

There are two entirely separate forums:

1. The independent "unofficial" one Jim was
referring to. For reasons nobody has been able to explain, their server
is at best unreliable and frequently times out.

2. The "official" one Apache
inherited from which you are referencing.

I think it might perform better if you go to the link i gave and do your search from inside 
their forums.  That way you might dodge any links with domains that might have changed.  
Outside of their forums search engines may still be giving old links.

Hi Jim,

I didn't realise this had cropped up before - pretty sad as I logged the
first message! I have attached a link to when this was discussed back in

BTW, link not working for me at present either

Been doing a lot of googling trying to figure out how to write some
python macros in LO calc and many links lead to posts on
Lately everytime I try one it times out.

Regards,  Jim

I don't use it either, this is a link to an archived post.

Thanks,  Jim
