     Check it out, explore, let me know of anything you think would make it better.

     Try it out on your Smart Phone, it’s all responsive and mobile friendly. Some of the webmail options work on some SmartPhones. If the default webmail doesn’t work well for you, try the RoundCube or RainLoop alternatives.  If neither of those work well, there is a ownCloud mail client that works very well on mobile devices.

Maintenance Completed (I think)

     Sorry things took much longer than I had anticipated.

     In the process of doing kernel updates in iglulik, the machine which hosts the users /home directories, I accidentally clobbered the boot block rendering the machine unbootable.

     The CPU in this machine is an i7-6850 which is too new for Centos6 to boot and the rescue disk I had on hand there was an old CentOS6 disk.

     I had to run back home and grab a Ubuntu rescue disk to fix the boot block.

     Then, as if I wasn’t having enough fun, that same machine needed a BIOS update, and when I applied that it erased all the BIOS settings.  It took me another couple of hours to get that back to operational however I still do not know if it will be stable.

     The issue at hand is the CPU voltage, I do not remember how I had it set before.  I determined that 1.91 volts wasn’t enough for it to run.  1.2 volts it would run but take lots of errors and crash.  At 1.25 volts I was able to run mprime for about an hour so I hope that it is stable.  Time will tell.

     And these things were supposed to address the spectre exploit, as it turns out they only address variant 1 and not variant 2.
