Subject: Please ignore mail bounces for

Hi all, some of you may have noticed have received mail bounces from
mail that you sent me from that referenced failure
to deliver mail to, for example:

  <>... Deferred: Connection timed out with
  Message could not be delivered for 3 days
  Message will be deleted from queue

Some of you may have also noticed that mail sent to may
have also started bouncing in a similar fashion.  

My apologies.  Unfortunately failed on December 23rd, and
because I and other people who might have been able to gain physical
access to the colo facility (where the server is located) have been
travelling for the holidays, I haven't been able to get the machine back
up as quickly as I would like.  Please rest assured that mail sent to is being read, despite the bounce messages. was a backup copy of mail sent to that
I established a while back as a backup way of reading my mail
after my IMAP server was down for 4 days.[1]

In any case, mail service to has not been interrupted; I
am reading mail sent there, and it is the primary way that I should be
contacted for any Linux/Open Source related matters.

Mail to is currently being held in mail queues, and
depending on how SMTP mailers have been configured, may have started
getting returned to sender.  A few debian mailing lists are set to feed, and some people use it to contact me, although I
generally have not published it as a contact address.

I'm hopeful that I will get restored fairly quickly, and
apologize for any inconvenience/confusion this may have prompted.

[1] An interesting story, which involved the MIT I/T staff waiting 36+
hours for a Solaris ufs fsck to finish on a 1TB filesystem, before
aborting it in frustration and using other methods to restore service,
but for another day.
