The domain (web server, cvs server and mailing lists)
will be occasionally unavailable during the following weeks.

-- A router controlled by my ISP is failing nightly.

-- The ISP is slow to respond because the router handles 
   only 5 other customers, and we will all shortly be 
   ex-customers (due to, actually, of all things, the Enron 
   collapse, which caused my ISP to go out of business. That, 
   and telecom deregulation, which has quadrupled prices 
   (from $80/month to $300++/month) for people like me, 
   who dare to operate a server on the internet. Grrrr.) 

-- I will be switching ISP's in about a week, or sooner.
   This all by itself would be a less-than-smooth transition;
   but its compounded by the above.

If you sense that things are still goofed up in a couple of weeks, let
me know.  In the meanwhile, please be patient.
