Well folks. Some of you have noticed that the list server has been  
down. It should be back up now.

A couple things happened:

1- The server was unexpectedly put onto a different, faster, network  
connection and the IP address changed. The folks who co-host my  
servers somehow couldn't reach me to let me know this was going to  
happen. This meant that the server was unreachable because everything  
including DNS was configured for the old IP address.

2- The power supply on the server was becoming faulty. So I actually  
upgraded the hardware.

This means that the server is faster and on a faster network.

Sorry for the downtime though...
