R/ESS/Bioc* mailing lists: 2 hour time out -- 6 hours from now

This is (hopefully) a  "once in ten years" event,
happening today, from 17--19 CET
	  (= 16--18 UTC = 11--13 US Eastern == 8--10 US Pacific Time)

The main `vault' (security, air condition,..) where our mail
server hypatia is located will undergo a major `network
re-connection' event that will affect a considerable part of ETH
-- including all the mailing lists @stat.math.ethz.ch.

For you, it should only look as one very long mail delay
(i.e. no message bouncing should occur AFAIK).

Apart from that, I hope many of you have found that the mail
delays, particularly on R-help, have become considerably smaller
thanks to the new hardware (and software to less extent) the
mail server is running on.
