Please send a link to the slashdot.jp page or other related materials
- I can get it translated but I can't find the page because I'm not
sure how to search for "nihonsoft" at slashdot.jp.

I think that's only for the Groupware service. Their debian webshop
still seems to be open today.

More importantly, I can't see any mention of debian services on their
site, but I don't see that we require public announcement on
http://www.debian.org/consultants/info though. Might be worth
emailing them just to check that they still work with debian.
Hope that helps,
