Nice debugging, good to see the web server back up!

FYI today I made a general system change for security -
https://www.openbsd.org/errata64.html

There was a nasty Xorg vulnerability affecting Linux and BSDs that
allows people to do things as root. The OpenBSD people didn't get
notified about the problem until just after they released 6.4, so the
fix wasn't part of the release. Anyway, I removed the setuid bit from
/usr/X11R6/bin/Xorg. Should have no negative impact on us because we
don't use X on the server.
