Oh right, I just looked at the day and saw 18th ...
My last hop:
Do not really remember if there was another hop behind it or if the next one is the mud - so it could be the mud itself that is down.
I remember that it was one of the routers before the mud the last few times.
The strange thing is that the redirect forum.geas.de works - that was down the last time, so the DNS is working and that points more towards the mud itself.
