Yes, a major hardware failure.  The forums (and other
KDE areas) had to be moved to new hardware, and the databases restored. 
This often leads to oddities like old messages showing up as new.  All

connection problems this morning, unless more repair work had been found to
be necessary.  I've been out all day, but I can certainly connect
