We're fighting very old software running on failing hardware and a
development framework that can't be updated. In short, WAVE 3 is on
its last leg. I have restarted everything, so it should be working at
the moment. If it goes down again, let me know off list.

We are just days from launching WAVE 4. This will be a new version of
WAVE with many new features. We've been working on this for quite some
time and are excited to be very close to releasing it. We'll be
conducting a private beta in the next week or so, then launching next
week, assuming we don't run into any major issues. A Firefox toolbar
version that runs entirely within Firefox (no WAVE server interaction
= evaluation of password protected, intranet, dynamically generated,
script modified pages, etc.) will be available shortly after.
