  1. July 31, 2020new www.math server

    A new server is now handling www.math. This has been tested intermittently for some time. The new server supports up-to-date security protocols that recent browser versions are either warning about or requiring. If you have PHP code in your public_html web pages you need to rewrite them to use PHP 7 instead of the deprecated PHP 5. If you have architecture-specific compiled code in your public_html web pages you need to rebuild it for Linux instead of Solaris.
