The "Sage is starting" screen seems to have two issues:

(1) If I point my browser to localhost:8080, which is what the "Sage is starting" screen tells me the Jupyter interface should go to, I get a "connection was refused" error. I am guessing that's just a mistaken link. But what port should I be going to? 8888?

(2) It says if problems continue, to email support and gives a link of Following that link and sending an email gives an autoresponse of "Delivery Status Notification (Failure) We're writing to let you know that the group you tried to contact (sage-support) may not exist, or you may not have permission to post messages to the group." It seems to me that if people are required to join a google group in order to get support, that should be part of the instructions rather than telling users to directly email the group.

(2) Hmm, in this case it should just be posting to, and then be moderated. Try that, and if so, we can definitely fix this in the next release.

Try what? I sent email to that address and got the delivery notification failure. I went to the group, and it said I needed to join in order to be able to post. No option for being sent to moderation (which is what happens to some other google groups that I moderate).

Interesting - I thought that this was a moderated group in that sense. I'll post on sage-devel about this.
