Thank you for answering my questions, Zack.

I'm also interested to hear about your plans to revamp and upgrade 
my.cdash.org  Hope it will include secure (HTTPS) connection at the 
login page. I didn't feel entirely at ease, entering my mail address and 
password at an insecure HTTP page.

Unfortunately I do already get the message, "The project SuperElastix 
has reached the maximum daily upload quota. You should upgrade to a 
premium account to avoid missing builds". Did I really already exceed 
100MB (the daily upload quota, according to 

Kind regards, Niels
