Good news, a long time coming. Do you know it was down yesterday? Presumably due to the migration. It would be nice to see some acknowledgement of that.

Yes, there were a couple of DNS-related breaks in service for MRAN and checkpoint during the server switchover, but all issues should be resolved now.

I love this blog a lot.
Thank you for this post.Good news, a long time coming.

Thanks for posting this. We definitely experienced problems after the change was made; we see the following for any package we attempt to install from MRAN:

> install.packages("aimPlot")
Warning in install.packages :
unable to access index for repository https://mran.microsoft.com/snapshot/2017-09-01/src/contrib:
Line starting 'Documen ...' is malformed!

(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Error in install.packages : unknown input format
