Wednesday, September 26, 2007 password/account management

For a long time we had a confusing thing where to get a subversion (and webdav) account you had to go to and set it up there.

We've improved it a bit now so resetting your password (or just setting up the account initially) you just go to Whee!

Let me know ( if you have any trouble with the new site.

Week of failures!

Geez! This week it seems like everything is falling apart over here. Servers that have been running for hundreds of days are acting up. Configuration files last changed 3 years ago needs tweaking. Programs not changed for 4 years have bugs popping up.

We had an outage of mail (mail bounced) early this morning and later in the afternoon many of the sites were unavailable for a few hours. One of our database servers got "stuck" and it had a cascading effect on some of the web services.

Apologies! IM me at if you see anything else amiss and we'll get it fixed in a hurry.
