Change in Versioning

Hi,

The way the server is currently versioned is being changed.  Instead of cumulative updates piled into a large update, the versioning is being changed to Builds.  This way, the server will get updated more frequently.

The next build will be 137 (There have been exactly 136 revisions to the server so far).  Build 137 will be released soon.

Server issues fixed

The server was down for a week due to a dead hard drive issue.  Luckily our server provider had a backup of our disk contents and fixed the issue by replacing the hard disk in the server.

Everything on server is restored to about 30 minutes before the server crashed, so you should not have lost too much.

Sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused anyone.
