I don't run Cauldron except to keep an eye on it.  My everyday system
is Mga 2 Official.  I am getting too senile to be any real use to
anybody, even without inherited depression, winter blues and a winter
infection.  It is questionable how much "depression" is only a blue
day, but there are suicides right through my grandmother's ancestors,
including one of her sisters. I am not suicidal, but at present, 
life is far from being fun.

Surely this whole "bug" is now history?  Whatever the cause was, it
disappeared at the second attempt.
