    xx Website Restored
    November 22, 2014, 05:32:11 PM by admin
    For some as of yet unexplained reason, bluestarlinux.org managed to find itself in a "cpu-limit-exceeded" error condition on 11/19. Despite having opened a support ticket that same day, I received no response until today - too little too late. I had to download the site content, back up the database, reset my account, then reload my database and upload the entire site content.

    Obviously, the site is now back on-line.

    Thank you all for your patience.

    Cheers

    The following package updates are now available for installation:

    chromium-pepper-flash-15.0.0.223-1
    google-chrome-38.0.2125.122-2
    dropbox-2.10.51-1

    proftpd-1.3.5-2
    squirrel-sql-3.6.0-1
    fbsplash-1.5.4.4-16

    The bslx-themes package has now been renamed to bslx-artwork - it will install as a replacement for bslx-themes. The new package is now available as:

    bslx-artwork-1.0.2-1

    Although there is a spotify update for 64-bit platforms, it doesn't function properly, so I've left it out of this round of updates.
