On June 30, 2015, on the occasion of 50 years of RUB, we have released Abbreviationes™ Professional. All Abbreviationes™ licensees have access free of charge. The original version has been renamed to Abbreviationes™ Classic.
Nota bene: Access to Abbreviationes™ is only available to Abbreviationes™ licensees and requires a registered IPv4 address. If you encounter any difficulties in accessing these Web servers, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Data compression proxies such as Google Chrome’s Data Saver must be turned off. Otherwise, your requests will be relayed through a proxy server, and you will attempt to access Abbreviationes™ from a non-registered IPv4 address.
To access Abbreviationes™ from off-campus, use your university’s VPN or proxy server. (A Campus Edition license is required for this service.) With your smartphone in hand, you can have access to Abbreviationes™ from anywhere.
The Web server addresses for Abbreviationes™ may change in the future, so please bookmark this page for future reference. To visit this page directly, point your Web browser at http://abbreviationes.net/ or http://abbrev.net/ for short.
If you cannot reach this page, which is hosted on the central WWW server, you may connect to the Abbreviationes™ Web servers directly using their hostnames listed above or using their IPv4 addresses 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206.
On April 15, 2015, we had a major power outage affecting the entire campus. Our servers were offline for more than 20 hours. In such cases of emergency, you will find the most up-to-date information on Twitter @ruhrunibochum.
