Hi Georg,

How recently have you used the SeqHound database?  We installed it from 
CPAN but when we try to run the following test script this error occurs:

MSG: HTTP::Request error: 500 Can't connect to seqhound.blueprint.org:80 
(Bad hostname 'seqhound.blueprint.org')

use warnings;
use Bio::SeqIO;
use Bio::DB::SeqHound;

my $sh = Bio::DB::SeqHound->new();
my $seq = $sh->get_Seq_by_acc("CAA28783");
print $seq->display_name, "\n";

Do you know if SeqHound has moved?  Is there a way to comfigure it so 
that it works?
