News History

For the news that are slightly too old for the front page, here are all the public announcements made since the first LeapingTiger server went online.

2016-08-22: DNS is back

I had completely forgotten that was managed by our own DNS server and didn't migrate the configuration to the new Debian installation. As such, all of was unreachable due to DNS lookup failure.

It's back, now. However, it's still deprecated and I strongly urge you to use instead.

2016-08-03: Welcome to hisoka v5

We have now migrated to Debian 8, to make maintenance easier and play along better with some legacy code.

This is still the same physical server, so all domains redirecting to hisoka's main IP should still work. However your SSH client will probably complain about a new server key (whose fingerprint should be e0:dd:b9:0a:e5:86:7f:da:21:54:31:24:8d:42:94:3a).

Some websites are still being migrated from lighttpd to nginx, but for all intents and purposes, hisoka should work just like before, except all our hosted sites should eventually be served exclusively over HTTPS, thanks to letsencrypt.

Sorry for any inconvenience, this should be the last big maintenance for a while.

2015-10-13: Microsoft addresses reachable again!

This was resolved a lot faster than last time, I suspect thanks to our signing up for SDNS and JMRP last time. Sorry for the inconvenience. I'll keep an eye on bounced e-mails and be more vigilant.

2015-10-07: Microsoft addresses blocked again

Looks like I got careless and missed recent bounce notifications, ending up in Microsoft blacklisting us again.

I'm looking into it, hoping it will be resolved soon enough. All my apologies for the inconvenience again. Blacklist me once, shame on you, blacklist me twice, shame on me.

2014-11-03: Microsoft Ban Lifted

I'm happy to announce that, hopefully thanks to the new security measures deployed on hisoka regarding mail handling and bouncing, we are no longer blacklisted by Microsoft.

Tigris e-mails can now be sent to Microsoft addresses again.

Sorry for the inconvenience. That one was a bit tougher than usual.
