To Be Determined

Wednesday, April 10, 2019 : BLU.ORG server crash

The BLU DNS/mail/web server suffered a hardware failure on April 10, 2019.

We've restored DNS and the web site to our development server, but we're having difficulty getting email configured. Our apologies for the outage; we're working on the problem, and hopefully mail will be functioning again soon.
