as most of you probably know by now, the rp-ml server suffered from a
serious hardware failure a couple of weeks ago. The hard drive of the
server broke down completely and all the data in it was lost forever.
Fortunately I had most of the files (including all the
archives) on a backup that was taken on August 17th.

Hannu was able to produce a replacement server on a very short notice
and I have spent the last couple of days installing and configuring the
operating system and all the required software. After having solved some
unforeseen problems, I have finally managed to re-build the list service
to almost what it used to be. Everything should work as before.

Of course, most of the emails that you have sent to the list between Aug
17th and today are now lost. Some of them may pop up later as the mail
servers purge their mail queues.

I'll monitor the list for a while and try to fix any errors as soon as
possible. If you find anything not working properly, please contact me
at zaphod (at) and I'll see if I can fix it.

Now, I think I'll take a dram of Ardbeg and start the weekend...
