Just for information:

  • We did a clojure presentation with https://github.com/inbox/notifications4clojure as the main support.

  • Then Raynes kindly and rapidly rebooted the server (after notification by @denlab)

We have a bigger presentation at the end of the month, this time
we will prepare a backup server locally (any notes or advices would be
