The "Graphical display" option on the server status page seems to have been hacked. It brings up a webpage with a girl in a bathing suit.
Maybe someone should know..

That's an outside hosted link, I think whoever was charting for us has lost that.

Cheers, Mike.

Since it's not functional,

Since it's not functional, I've removed this external link. Please let us know if it gets fixed or if someone has set up a replacement for it.

I sent a message to the graph supplier on August 10 asking that he support S5R4. He replied on August 11 saying that he had updated the page to handle the new work. In between those two moments the same display you are reporting was visible for an hour or so. Possibly that is what shows when he is working on his page.

I have found the display quite useful in the past and hope that you will reestablish the link as I believe the anomaly was temporary.

After writing this much of this note I look through my e-mail records and found the old link to the page:

http://homepage.hispeed.ch/einstein/

At the moment that I tried it worked properly including the relatively new S5R4 link.

I truly do not think that the undesirable properties of the page that appears when the graph pages not functioning are so bad as to require deletion of a link.

The bathing suit was quite tame (I was hoping for more!), but there is a 18+ link that might be a bit more problematic...

It was an error of my hosting

It was an error of my hosting provider. I sent them a message yesterday and they have fixed it somewhen today. Dunno what happend.
Would it be possible to have some webspace on einstein.phys.uwm.edu for the graphs? Or even generate the graphs on the server?
