Sorry to anybody who wanted to use tedium yesterday, but kept getting strange and annoying error messages. I know how you feel - they were strange and extremely annoying for both me and Ian from (who look after the server)... at least until we tracked the problem down.

It was all caused by an unscheduled but very necessary upgrade to the software on the server in order to fix a security hole. Unfortunately it made tedium a bit too secure by breaking it so no-one could log on.

Things are now all fixed, and in future I'll be keeping the development version in step with the latest versions of stuff rather than in step with what's on the server everyone else uses. Then I should trip over the problems first, and be able to fix them before they're a problem for anyone else.
