musicpd mailing list change


it looks like the musicpd devel mailing list is not updating since a few months.

The posting address is still the same, but there has been a migration from
sourceforge to another server :

Is this possible to update it ?

Thanks !

needs to be updated.)

Further diskiness

I've gotten the new 4TB spinning disks (for various mirrors), and I'm
probably going to install them tomorrow or on Sunday.  So that probably
means further downtime.  But I'm not quite sure which machines I'm going
to install the disks in, so I'm not quite sure what will be going down.

Re: Disk switcharoo

I'm now going to switch the spool from ger to plane.  There should
hopefully be no significant downtime.  I'm basically just stopping
spooling, mounting plane:/spool/articles over /var/spool/news/articles,
and then starting spooling again.

I'll keep the NOV files and the active/history files on ger.

plane should stop reporting spam in these groups

The spam reported by plane in these group, isn't spam:

(and if there should happen to be one real report in all of the noise it
won't bee seen by me...)
積丹尼 Dan Jacobson | 3 Oct 05:49 2014 glues next paragraph onto each message without even a whitespace

Each item in a phpBB feed has a "<p>Statistics" (<p>統計).
$ GET | perl -wnle 'print for /<p>統計/g' | wc -l

Alas, rips out the <p> and glues the whole mess to each message,

The whole thing is then truncated, so on shorter messages, we end up
seeing the mess. On longer ones we don't.

for a in \ \ \
do w3m -dump $a
done|perl -pwle 's/統計/  <at>  <at>  <at>  <at>  $&/'

Well at least <p> could become a whitespace, not zapped totally.

Thank goodness it doesn't affect NNTP.
