First of all: All user data & accounts are safe.
After a massive failure of the storage array it turned out that the best cause of action was to simply reinstall the OS. Since we did not have a comprehensive list of packages installed just prior to the array crash it is highly likely packages that were installed before are not installed yet. You can use the manager command and request installation of the package or contact our staff directly on IRC or email.
Thanks for baring with us through this and let us know if anything is not yet configured correctly.
For the record, the new ssh key fingerprints are:
We've upgraded to Debian 8.0! (Hooray!) In theory everything should work swimmingly but in practice some stuff always breaks. Let us know if anything isn't working the way it should be.
New git server
Unfortunately our gitorious server died slightly in the process of trying to upgrade to a recent version.
We've taken this oppertunity to switch to gitlab. You can find the new server at https://gitlab.insomnia247.nl/.
The old server is not entirely functional anymore and may not let you use it. Move your projects to the new server as soon as possible. If you need help moving a project or you do not have a local copy of your repo, contact us since we can always pull them from the old git server manually.
Owncloud available for all users.
We've set up an owncloud server for all our shell users. You can use your normal username and password to log in. You can find a permanent link to the owncloud server in the menu on the left.
Since this is a new service we're offering please do contact us if you find any problems with it.
Released php template
We just released our php template tokenizer!
The code was written as part of the upcoming project board for our shell users but has now been moved in to its own project. This project will serve as the basis for all of our upcoming php web projects including the public release of the TOR search engine, the next version of this website and of course the project board for which it was written.
The code can be found on our git server and a live demo of the example page here.

Linux VM for schools
We've launched a pilot project today (Nov. 29th 2011).
Teachers will be able to use this virtual server for a limited time under their full control in order to provide a live teaching environment, and have access to an interface to easily add student accounts.
This project will allow schools and organizations worldwide to offer real experience with a Linux system in their classes, when they don't have the resources to set up their own environments.
