Yet the reason for my adding the graphic link was based in the
historical fact that the "news" link doesn't seem to be touched
in a timely fashion to begin with. Even the "few" entries dealing
with the system being down are rarely followed up with "fixed"
status note. As stated in my documenting this addition, it was
placed there to try to head off all the "is it down" questions.
Julian rarely posted "news" as he was elbows deep in resolving
issues. Deputies aren't around all the time 'reporting' and from
appearances, not all of them gave the ability to "touch" the web
pages to provide these updates. IronPort staffers that are
maintaining the systems haven't made their presence known
anywhere (though no one has yet actually taken credit for
that last monster font entry on password issues a while back.)

Technically, the referenced page isn't "the forum" per se, just an
entry page that does contain Forum postings .... recall, it was
built and and provided as a possible spot for newcomers to find
and get some quick answers .... based on complaints from folks
that didn't find data needed on the existing "welcome" page (hmmm,

The opportune word here thus far is "links" ..... where to get data.
The background is once again dealing with web pages that never seem
to get updated. And as above, even if a "news" link was added to the
"welcome" page, that the "news" isn't there won't help much. That the
"parsing & reporting system is down" announcements have shown up
in the Forum Announcements much quicker than any "official" entry is
pretty much a historical fact. You'll note that all of the "limited" drops
(assumedly based on re-booting of systems) has never been mentioned
in the "news" link, and newsgroup traffic has been generated by those
unfortunate few that tried to logon/report during those blank spots ....
