Hello Alban, Hello everyone.
Welcome to the list, and thanks Alban for being the first to send
feedback. I've been a bit slow to answer - my apologies, I was
traveling - but I hope we can kick this list alive now.

Excellent. We're really doing our best to provide a fast,
uninterrupted service, even though TAB runs as a non-profit
organization and relies a lot on volunteer time. There may be some
downtime in the months to come - we are looking into hosting all the
artbeat sites together on some fast iron, probably outside of Japan -
but I'll try to give some advance warning here.

Both seem feasible. The former would be easy and I'm adding it to our
tracker as I write this. For the latter, no objection, but we may have
to test whether the current server scales before making it a permanent
feature. Any particular use case behind the 2000, 3000m SearchRange
need? Or would you just rather have a "no limit in distance" (with,
quite possibly, a hardcoded limit in the number of events returned,
