my message re: dns wasn't answered by david u because he wasn't subbed to 
sysadmin - just means we need to ensure everyone everywhere is on the right

Yes, but I reckon the assets.evolt.org thing will work on a manual basis for 
a while - "Hello contentians, please can those with privs[1] put these 
images on assets for me for an article ..." and it will be done.

[1] "those with privs" will pretty much mean someone with a shell login on 
the raq.

*I* did that so that Garrett's personal web space wouldn't be hit with 
unduly riotous bandwidth humpage.  I'll switch it over to assets.evolt.org 
later today once I'm sure the DNS has refreshed.
