Archived: main website, the wiki


Dec 10th, 2014: Radian is mysteriously back up again, so the live version of the wiki as well as the main website are available for a while again. Unfortunately, still no contact with its owners, still no way to upgrade it beyond 2.6.18-linode, and still no idea about whether it's going to stay. Therefore, a link to an archived version is still here.

Mar 1st, 2014: On March 1st, our main infrastructure server – Radian – finally went down, most likely forgotten by its owner. Luckily we had fresh backups, and anything important (like the LDAP or Kerberos databases) were already mirrored across several servers.
