Honestly, I'm not sure how to log into the machine anymore to check
the configuration. The sysadmin who set the box up has since departed.

The site never garnered much interest, and I haven't been able to
solve its login problems. I hereby declare ask.scipy.org dead. Please
ask your questions on this mailing list or StackOverflow.
