problems with ctan node

the machine failed at 06xx gmt this morning (2012-11-22), and we finally
put it back in service just before 1500 gmt.

the principal problem proved to be a failed disc in the archive raid
set; the hardware conspired to prevent us realising this at first (i'm
not sure how it managed to do this).  the machine (which is the property
of the uk tex users group) is now running with a disc from the (host)
university department's stores.  (it will probably not be missed, since
we seldom install discs as small as that, nowadays.)

i apologise for the inconvenience; i have an "action" to specify a cloud
machine to take over when i retire, and have not got around to working
on that ... for months, now.
