Dear GAP forum readers,
About a week ago one of our disks crashed. It was the disk on which the
GAP forum stuff, the 'ftp' software, and the WWW documents were stored.
Unfortunately we had no recent backup of this disk.
The GAP forum should be working again. However, I had to reconstruct the
subscribers list from a copy of 95/10/16, making recent changes by hand.
I'm fairly certain that I haven't missed any subscription requests.
But it might be that I accidentally missed some unsubscription requests.
So if you unsubscribed after 95/10/16 and now receive this message,
please don't be mad at me, simply unsubscribe again. I think I resend
all messages that came when the GAP forum was down (resp. answered one
message that was not of general interest), but if you are still looking
for a message you posted in the last week, write me.
The 'ftp' software for GAP 3.4.2 is back in place. However, we lost
everything that went to '/pub/incoming/' since 95/02/26. If you placed
stuff in there since 95/02/26, could you please 'ftp' it again. (Or even
better if you recently downloaded all the stuff from '/pub/incoming/',
could you please make it available to us).
The WWW documents are gone for good. It will take some time to make all
the documents again. When the WWW server is running again I will write
a short notice to the GAP forum.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
