My public page http://www.advogato.org/person/dfries/ on advogato fails to validate as good html. I'm using http://validator.w3.org/ but you can't just point it to the url or you advogato gives the validator a noone logged in page, which is correct. It's in the "Certify dfries as:" form which isn't generated if you aren't logged in. It works to save the page and use the upload file option.

All ISPs are requested to give 48 hours notice before changing subnet blocks, 7 days notice perferred. Although, I might as well wish for harddrives to respect the same notice period, but we know that's not going to happen.

It is always nice when you update your project, put out a freshmeat.net notice, and then your hosting site notices its IPs just changed.
