Just wanted to say hello. Having been out for a week I am presently inundated with email and related communications backlog; I will respond to everything but it will likely take the better part of the week. (So please don’t write to me 10 times asking if I’ve received your original email. :-)
I see that the server seems to have been down yesterday. It’s working fine for me today, so hopefully that issue has been resolved. MIT is observing the New Year’s Day holiday today (1/2) since the real holiday falls on a Sunday. So you should be able to submit stuff today as if it were still 1/1 – and no, you won’t be penalized for being a day late.
As for an “official” deadline extension, I doubt that’s going to happen as the server doesn’t seem to have been down for very long. I’ll know more when the ‘Tute officially reopens tomorrow.
Hope you all had a wonderful vacation.
