Yes. To do this you have to have Zope administrator access. By
default anyone can edit a wiki page, but it is possible to set
security options so that only someone logged in as administrator
can do this. I have changed the page you created so that it is now

I think it may be subtle problem with the Zope software. Ever since
we moved to the new hardware and also changed to using zeo for
database access, occassionally the Zope server seems to go into a
mode where it is using 99.9% of the processor and doing very little
real work. I am not sure of the exact cause, however I know that
if I stop and re-start both the zeo and zope server processes the
problem goes away. Right now I have set both of these servers to
automatically restart at about midnight CST every night so that if
the server is hung for some reason, then at least it should be ok
the next day without my intervention.

There have been some reports of problems like this related to the
older version of Python 2.3 that we are still using for MathAction.
In fact we are now more than a year behind the current versions of
both Python, Zope and ZWiki. I think I must plan seriously to upgrade
the software to the newer versions real soon.

Please let me know if this happens again.

Bill Page.
