Subject Re: wiki.openoffice.org is down, and pam is not runing so sudo is not possible.
Date Sun, 31 Mar 2013 11:55:53 GMT
    OK.  I gained control to ooo-wiki2-vm now, with the help from Gavin
(gmcdonald).  The system is updated, and ooo-wiki2-vm is scheduled to
reboot on 4/1 0:00am GMT+0, 12 hours from now.
