Yup, it's right. Now the vps number is the date. Web servers are healthy and running ok.

I noticed the change too, so much so that I captured a screenshot of it and was going to ask the same question, why the change as I too didn't twig the date format either ;D

That will do for the next 99 years before we need to change again, by which time I shan't be overly concerned about anti-virus solutions, just worms ;D

Just keeping an eye on the opposition  ;D
Nothing wrong with playing around innocently as long as you come home at the end
 this is RC1 of their newest version which expires on 1/11/2007 so its almost finished.
