To all subscribers:

We apologize for any difficulties you may be experiencing in trying to
access and/or navigate the LINGUIST List. As indicated in a message sent
out on October 16, 2003 (LINGUIST List 14.2803), we are in the process of
changing servers. We expect that, due to this server move, most of our
functions will not be working for the remainder of the day and, perhaps, 
most of tomorrow.

We are extremely grateful to the Universities of Edinburgh, Stockholm,
and Tuebingen which all maintain mirrors of the
website. These mirror websites will still be available when the main site is not. On the mirrors, links to web forms and
most search engines will not be operational, but you will still find
back issues, links to other web resources, and a lot of the
information relating to jobs, calls and conferences, and so on.

The URLs for the mirrors are as follows. Please use the one physically
closer to you; it should be faster.

Stockholm, Sweden:
Tuebingen, Germany:

As mentioned in the October 16th message, this is a very big move for us.
The new server, awarded us by Sun Microsystems under their Academic
Equipment Grant Program, will replace our old machine that has become
sluggish from all the demands we have been putting on it. We are
also taking this opportunity to upgrade some of our software and
implement some new systems. Once the new server is up and running, we
should provide a considerably faster and more reliable service.

Again, we appreciate your patience during this time, and as always, we are
very grateful for your support.

With best regards,

- Helen, Anthony and the LINGUIST List crew
