Cover opened, please panic!

You may have noticed that you didn't get any perl.org or pm.org mailing list email from 9am until 12 noon (pacific) this morning. We had a slight failure that required manual intervention. (The machine OOMed, and ssh got hosed as a side effect.)

I drove into the data center, and after a bit of fiddling to get the display working, discovered that the machine was very patiently waiting for a keypress because the cover sensor had been disturbed. That "feature" has been disabled.

No mail has been lost. Everything should have been caught up by now.
