Don't worry.  There'll be a server upgrade next week ;-)

Them's the breaks with running a research lab within a large bureaucratic
organization; we can't order the machines directly to us.  This isn't 
something that urgently needs to be solved immediately, and it isn't 
something that we can speed up.  Just hang tight for a little bit.

I think that this is a very good point.  What the heck is 
minnow.cc.gatech.edu anyway?  However, this is a historical accident
as a result of the fact that the Squeak Swiki started off as an 
experiment back in the (relative) infancy of Swiki.  If you think 
that it is important enough to address immediately, the author and
current maintainer is Je77 Rick.  You can contact him at
nadja@cc.gatech.edu; I'm sure he'll be glad to talk to you about
the possibility of moving the Swiki out of .gatech.edu.

Tell him Schwa sent you ;-)

Oops, didn't read this far.  AFAIK, I'm the only GaTech Squeaker on
this list.  But Je77's contact information is above.
