And to chime in on Lisi's offer -- no, finding a free host isn't going to
help the situation.  As you can see from other messages on the list most
free services aren't going to be very happy sinking the thousands of
dollars per year required to keep even part of the TDE services up and
running, not to mention the extra maintenance overhead (i.e. time I don't
have to actually work on writing TDE or pulling in a paycheck to live)
incurred by decoupling services and spreading them out everywhere.

Slavek and I are already working on moving a few smaller services to a
European host.  This should alleviate most of the end-user visible
difficulties until the main datacenter can be moved.
