I have ssh access to the server and actually installed a planet this 
morning but didn't announce it as I was hoping to get 
planet.ubuntu-uk.org subdomain setup for it first. You can find the 
planet at http://www.ubuntu-uk.org/planet/
it hasn't been finished yet and currently just has default settings and 
some feeds which were in the default config (though i added my blog ;)

However in getting the subdomain the admin of the box tells me that it's 
developing a hard disk problem. So i'm just going to hold off spending 
time on it until we know the situation with it more clearly.
