Be sure that you have the last couple month's additions to the WAALT backed up off-site. The UH tech team tried to update the Mediawiki software and found that the webfarm servers (that include the WAALT but not the AALT) are way out of date. They have to upgrade the hardware and cannot do that while the university is on lockdown: they have no idea when that will be, but I suspect it will be in the next few weeks. They advise that anything added in the last couple months might be lost when they complete the upgrade to Mediawiki (I don't know why that would be, but they are the techs). Thus an off-site backup is strongly advised.--RC Palmer

Oh dear, will do. I already had to re-upload 18 entries which disappeared between mid-March and mid-April.--TSmith
