They certainly are cooler that calling Ico on a Sunday morning and
asking him to drive to campus and press the reset-button or sth. :)

but actually optimizing a virtual machine's I/O for >1 TB/month traffic
and sending ~1Million of [valid] emails per month is much harder than on
bare metal.

Thanks for reporting this. It's good to know there are people who keep
an eye open.

I hazard a guess that this occured because you did not flush your
browsers' DNS cache and/or you were unlucky to just try that while I was
tweaking some apache preferences.

Anyway, there may still be a few minor glitches as we continue to tweak
the system during the next days. - but don't hesitate to contact us
should you experience some unexpected behaviour with the site.
