no need to bother Marcus anymore. While he indeed set up and then managed our server hosting for many years (as former chair of the German Squeak users group), this year we finally transferred the server ownership to the Software Freedom Conservancy. Ken, I, and Bradley (of SFC) have access to the robot if needed.

I think Ken will be out of the picture for days. If somebody could contact Marcus (he's cc'd above) to flip the switch, perhaps that would be a solution.
