As many have noted the KAP Discussion Page has been offline for three months due to server problems at my university. This has been a pretty frustrating experience for all involved. The prolonged outage was caused by a perfect-storm confluence of several factors. First, the discussion page site is old. The first version of the forum started in 1995. As successive generations of WWW servers and administrators marched through the years there were some odd decisions about how our site was addressed through redirects and aliases. These proved incompatible with contemporary security practices. Second, my college's WWW administrator left without notice and replacement staff had more pressing matters to attend. Third, as I have now been retired for six years I no longer have personal working relationships with the staff involved. And, finally, this discussion site is peripheral at best to the college's core misison. With all that said, I am most appreciative for the assistance from collecge staff in getting us back online. For now, we should all be able to review existing posts and add new ones.
The site has a new, and somewhat clunky, URL: http://research-benton.ced.berkeley.edu/discuss2/
The old URL should re-direct to this. Still, you might want to update your bookmarks.
Challenges remain and I will soon put together a new post regarding the future of this discussion page.
