[jdom-interest] The list is live again

So it looks like the mailing list is working again.
As all of you have probably noticed, it's been down since May 23rd. The
problem was that the box hosting jdom.org had a serious crash and had to
be reinstalled and restored. I was in Europe on vacation at the time
(Murphy's Law says when your box implodes it will be when you're in a
tiny Italian village). I had enough internet access to guide some of
the restore process but not enough access (or desire at the time, let's
be honest) to dig in deep to make sure everything worked correctly.
Among the things that didn't come back correctly right away were
anonymous CVS (now working) and the mailing list (now working).
I believe we're back up to speed now. If you have an anonymous CVS
checkout, please verify it's working for you the same as it used to.
All the people who wrote me about the dead list, feel free to post your
questions and answers again.
So no, JDOM isn't dead. The box just had a little temper tantrum when I
went away. We're still going to do 1.0, and going to do it as quickly
as we can manage. I'm closing on a new house tomorrow, moving in over
the next week and a half, so it probably won't be til after that.
Things like getting a fridge have priority. I apologize. The time
spent on the restore I would have enjoyed using on the code.
P.S. Thanks to James Duncan Davidson for overseeing the restore process
in my absence. You can tell I trust the guy -- I let him authorize at
his discretion the $125/hr charges the ISP hit me with for the restore
work. That's $875 of trust. And yes, I may pass around the hat later. :)
