You normally telnet to magica.update.uu.se.
Unfortunately it is powered off at the moment, because we have a tight
electricity budget imposed on us since about six months ago.
It's still fully operational, and I just need to turn a key to have it

We plan to have a substitute machine online for now, as Magica can't be on
24/7, but I have had trouble getting a sysadm to put a machine at my
disposal with two ethernet interfaces (mostly a question of time).

John Wilson have gratiously donated an E11 license for Magica' to run on.
(Many thanks for that!)
