Outbound email is currently broken, so you'll get an error if you use the password reset feature. Apologies for the disruption. Will post an update when it's working again.

While I can't in good conscience recommend the "Mass advertising mailing service" that has been attempting to promote themselves via dpaste today, I _can_ say that they have at least 1,693 different IPs at their disposal. I know this because the blocklist is now 1,693 IPs longer than it was before.

Hopefully you will rarely if ever see this, but dpaste's maintenance mode has received an upgrade.

Funny sequence of events that occasionally happens when production Django sites get run in debug mode:

1. Unsuspecting user goes to site, gets error page.
2. Only thing that looks clickable on page is "Switch to copy-and-paste view", so they click it.
3. Now there's a button, "Share this traceback on a public website", so they click that.
4. Now they've created an item on dpaste.com and they're like "WHAT IS HAPPENING?!"

Our domain registrar seems to be having intermittent DNS problems today. Apologies to anyone who has found the site unreachable as a result.
