... yep, me too. It looks like it would take some more time.
I registered my openMosixview project there too and there 
was a prob with the registration which should be fixed fast
(as i heard) but i still have no working account or project
page either. To my mind we can/should already register
our project there and move when it is "the right time" ;)
