Hi everyone,

If, at your institution, you are behind an internet proxy, you may
need to configure your computer such that the Ifeffit updater can find
the update that Matt announced last week through the proxy.

I know that some folks at Brookhaven and the NSLS have had trouble
doing so in the past (myself included).  I made a wiki page explaining
in detail how I was able to solve this problem without otherwise
harming the functionality of my computers.


Everyone should update.  If you have not done so because of a proxy,
hopefully that wiki page will help.  If your proxy configuration is
different, feel free to put that information of that wiki page.
