When I google around for fixing SSH login delay, most articles tell you to add the UseDNS no you the server's sshd_config file. However, I regularly have to use some servers where this setting has been turned off but I still get delays. For future reference, here's my fix. Add the following to your client .ssh/config:

Just a quick update: I will be giving a presentation about all the new features in Officeshots at the 2010 Document Freedom Day in Baarn in The Netherlands. I will be updating the audience about the progress made since my presentation last year at the DFD. I am not sure exactly what time I will speak, but it will be taped for those who cannot be there.

The mailinglists server lists.jejik.com is down for some much needed maintenance. The OS is being reinstalled and the data will be rebuild using backups.
Update 16:00 The maintenance is finished and all systems are operating as they should.
The subversion server is down. There is a problem with mod_gnutls that causes Apache to use
100% CPU and never finish any request. It started around 5 AM this
morning (European time) and nothing I do seems to work.
#apache on irc.freenode.net isn'table to help either, so I am forced to
take the SSL domains on the server offline while I investigate this issue.
I am getting really, really fed up with mod_gnutls. It is causing way
more trouble that it's worth. Unfortunately it's the only way to have
multiple SSL virtual hosts with just one IP address. The server that
hosts subversion also hosts a few other websites which require SSL to work.
I will try to get the server back online as soon as possible.
Update 12:22h: The Subversion server is back. It turns out that there is a bug in libdb which causes gnutls to lock up when trying to write session cache data in some rare circumstances. I tried replacing libdb with memcached but unfortunately gnutls is built without memcached support on Debian Lenny.
In the week of April 14 our webserver will be moved to a new location. You should not notice anything of this since we can simply reassign the existing IP address to the new server, so no DNS cache needs to be updated. We will be upgrading our base platform from Debian Etch to Debian Lenny during the move. I will update this post once the move has been completed.
Update: The server move has been completed. Please let us know if you see any problems.
