Dear all,

After a malicious cracker attack last friday on the Unix
system on which Sesame, our online RDF Schema Querying and
Storing system, ran, we were forced to take the server
offline and reinstall it.

We are very pleased to announce that as of now, Sesame is
back online at:


Sesame supports highly expressive querying of both RDF data
and Schema information, using an OQL-style query language,
called RQL, which is being developed by the ICS-FORTH
institute in Greece.

At the online demo on the website, you can perform RQL
queries on several example RDF(S) repositories. Technical
documentation and tutorials are available as well. Uploading
of data and schema information is reserved for authorized
users for now, but if you want to experiment with this as
well, just drop us a line and we'll create a repository for

We hope to receive your feedback and comments soon!

Best regards,

Jeen Broekstra
Arjohn Kampman
