DNS servers not reachable

Provider of our domain and DNS services, NetworkSolutions.com, is experiencing repeated distributed denial-of-service attacks. The DNS servers that map www.coderesort.com to address has at times not been available. We are sorry about this and any problems you may be experiencing, but it seems that the worst is now passed as the servers have started responding again.

Using svnsync to make a local project mirror

You may at any time make a full local backup of your Subversion repository using the svnsync tool that is part of Subversion.

Much information about this tool is published on the interwebs, but we've made a how-to that is as simple as it can possibly get. As always this information is available in the 'Help' section of all projects, and of course by direct link:


Together with web project backups, this lets you keep local copies of ALL your CodeResort project information.

Renewed SSL Certificate

We have just deployed a new SSL certificate as our old certificate was set to expire in the next month.

As Subversion clients often come without any pre-defined certificate authorities, each new certificate must be explicitly accepted. For our new certificate, the approval should contain information similar to this - particularly verify the fingerprint:

Error validating server certificate for 'https://www.coderesort.com:443':
 - The certificate is not issued by a trusted authority. Use the
   fingerprint to validate the certificate manually!
Certificate information:
 - Hostname: *.coderesort.com
 - Valid: from Mon, 06 Jun 2011 06:30:33 GMT until Wed, 06 Aug 2014 18:06:16 GMT
 - Issuer: GeoTrust, Inc., US
 - Fingerprint: 45:f4:c0:4b:e8:e6:1e:21:21:a5:68:c3:d7:18:c6:63:d6:26:62:3e
(R)eject, accept (t)emporarily or accept (p)ermanently?

Please accept it (p)ermanently to make Subversion client work as before.
