Just to let you guys know there will be some work done on the server tonight, it is gonna start around 20:00 CET. I'll turn off forums about an hour prior to that. It is gonna last for 2 to 4 hours if everything goes as planned.

okay @ Rock very much appreciate the warning
any work done on the server to improve things is only good news for everyone ,
just a thought maybbe its possible to leave up a notice up that Server maintenance is being done that will very much help to avoid any sort of confusion which may occur ,
anything at all that might help stabilty is im sure what every member including myself wishes to see happen
i think our fight against spam bots and attackers needs to continue no matter what for the good of this forums future
please do take whatever time you need to fix things everyone will understand and respect the work you have done and are doing every day .
cheers !

Its Just you ..Search button works fine :thum:
Clear Cache and try log in again it should help .

OK, 'search' is working fine now but there was still a problem with 'New Posts'.

I normally access SU via a bookmark to:
http://www.sat-universe.com/search.php?do=getnew
but it's not been working since the recent downtime.

For reasons best known to myself I'm using an old version of Firefox, v26 to be precise.

When I go to 'New Posts' I get "We're still working hard to fine-tune the server. Please wait, we'll be back ASAP." and a cartoon of a man frantically typing at a PC. He's probably sending me the lecture about always running the latest browser version.

Anyway my solution was to change the bookmark to:
http://www.sat-universe.com/search.php?do=getnew&nojs=1

That first url works fine here. And the message you got doesn't exist anywhere on our site atm so it can only come from browser cache.
For firefox I suggest going to history-show all history finding sat-univere.com entry right click on it and choose Forget about this site. That will clear all cache only for our site and not mess up others.
