Yeah..I've noticed that with a lot of tools, whether on the toolserver or
on labs. The tool I use monthly is:

http://tools.wmflabs.org/glamtools/treeviews/

I ping Magnus all the time and he does his best to fix any issues and now i
just feel like a broken record each month. It is stifling my reports as a
Wikipedian in Residence to UNESCO and the Library of Congress :(

It's really tough to function without it, and so many other tools anymore.
