Update: orion has suffered a catastrophic failure that has corrupted the
disks.  Attempts to recover the data has failed thus far, but efforts are
continuing.  In the mean time, a replacement server has been provided by
Bob, and backups (albeit old and not complete) have been restored.  Setup
of this server is underway, and orion services (mainly www.netrek.org and
one of the metaservers) will be back up as soon as possible.

Going forward, Bob and I've worked out an arrangement to minimize the risk
of this kind of loss in the future.  This involves complete replacement of
server hardware, taking advantage of ESX and NAS, and improved backup
systems.  Some of the services on orion will be relocated to other servers.

Thanks for your patience.  And special thanks to Bob, Real Time and its
staff for their ongoing, generous support in hosting these servers for the
Netrek community.
