Thank you very much, Antonio.

It looks like it's currently running at 22:00 UTC each night. Can you
bump that up 2 more hours?

Is the place where you're hosting it stable enough that we can count
on it? Do you have some sort of error reporting if it can't

Is there a way to get it (or MediaWiki) to email somewhere
(spoon-notify maybe?) on important day changes (nday 9 and nday 1
right now)?
