  • My ISP has replaced all their web and emailservers so everything is working now. SIC@HOME has also received the first results, from Terry Lee, the author of SETIBuf. Terry tells me that he's planning on making SICBuf, so that users have something to worry about, as it is know, they have nothing to do. I don't know how he's gonna do that, otherwise that hacking my precious client, so SIC@HOME might have it's first hacker attack now... I will soon make a statistics page now that I've received results. I've added a counter to the page. A terrible java counter.. I said I wanted my own, but I changed my mind.

  • My ISP's webserver died shortly after I uploaded SIC@HOME. Probably due to the high load... Anyway, a new mirror has been added, here. Only email will work. Normal operation will resume on Sunday.
