    It's still down apparently:

    This web page is not available
    SRWare Iron could not load the web page because user.services.openoffice.org took too long to respond. The website may be down or you may be experiencing issues with your Internet connection.

    I couldn't log in for about a day so far. There was quite a bit of confusion as to the status of the forum after Oracle "handed" Oo_O over to the Apache Foundation. The servers were owned by Oracle. Maybe, a transition is in progress but ...

    However, I have discovered this.

    EDIT: This looks like their forums.

    Well, there's a long story behind the forum at the link you provided. For various reasons, it had largely fallen into disuse and the one that is now down became the active one.

    OK, good. At least it's not so much of a mystery now. I was beginning to think I may have to write to Arthur C. Clark (well, apart from the fact that he's dead).

    Well, if you do have questions about LibO, not OpenOffice, you could ask here:
    http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/Users-f1639498.html (after signing up)

    That's a place where LibO devs hang out.
