Hi all,

Some quick updates:

1. Earthlink is still blocking us.

2. You are not alone. :-) or :-( depending on your perspective. Comcast and
Yahoo are blocking now, too.

3. The district has made some infrastructural changes which might address
all of these problems.

So for now, there's no further need to report the issue to Earthlink.
Hopefully, once the changes are complete the issue simply vanishes.

We'll keep you posted.
