Dear Sequence Fans,  David Applegate provided
thge following explanation for the troubles people
were having today.  Everything /should/ be fixed now!

But let me and Dave know if there are further problems.


A new version of the AT&T Research web site
(http://www.research.att.com) was deployed yesterday.  This had some
unplanned consequences, including visibility of www2.research.att.com
and some DNS changes, and additional side effects, such as the search

The search problem was probably caused by an incorrect redirection
that's been fixed.

We are going to eliminate www2.research.att.com's visibility;
so you should continue to use http://www.research.att.com/~njas/sequences and ignore
the www2 that's showing up.

I'm not aware of any problems caused by the DNS changes, but if there
are any, they may take 24-48 hours to go away because DNS servers
cache results.
