This had been coming for a while, and has finally happened.  It looks
like Transvirtual has finally run out of cash and is shutting down
operations.  I spent the last two and half years working there (up until
about a month ago), and it's very sad to see this day.  :-(

But don't worry - Kaffe.org is an open-source project, and it will

Transvirtual has been providing the machine for Kaffe.org, plus the
bandwidth, and the Kaffe.org domain name.  I imagine that will go away
in faily short order, as they have no more cash to pay the bills.

So I'd like to solicit the donation of a machine and bandwidth on which
I can move the site over to.  I'd prefer a dedicated machine, so we can
run various daemons and databases, and hand out user accounts on it.  I
have a full backup of the current site, so it shouldn't be too hard to
transition it.

I've asked Transvirtual if they'd be willing to transfer the kaffe.org
domain name to the project.  Hopefully they won't have a problem with
that.  If there is a problem, I've temporarily set up
"kaffe.jimpick.com" to point to the server.
