Thanks.  I was actually despamming pages (yes, again, the same 30 pages
even!) while you did the install.  For about a 30 seconds the pages were
all coming back empty!  Wow, did I panic.

Then the pages came back and I started getting external link errors and I
suspected that you were busy behind the scenes.

Thanks!  I hope this will hold us until the RuWiki authorization is in place.
