Handhelds.org down

On friday 21.10.2005 there started migration of handhelds.org servers from CRL (due to closedown) to MIT. It should be finished on saturday, but it seems things were not that smooth, so they are still most of the time unreachable.
Original posture on hh.org:

Due to the closure of HP's Cambridge Research Lab, the handhelds.org site will be down Friday October 21st at noon EST until Saturday October 22 22:00 EST while services are being migrated to their new locations at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Oregon State University (OSU).

Thanks go to HP for the donation of the handhelds.org servers and equipment to Handhelds.org, Inc..

Thanks go to the Open Source Lab (OSL) at OSU for hosting handhelds.org.

Thanks go to the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT for hosting handhelds.org.

...and to everybody that I forgot to mention.

The result of these transitions will be a much more reliable and robust site for all the users with higher bandwidth and better fail over.
