Message 899797 - Posted: 26 May 2009, 22:32:21 UTC

We're back after the long holiday/anniversary weekend. Phew! That was fun, and now we can get back to work on some outstanding projects.

First off it should be noted the weekend had some issues. For some reason the "forum preferences" table broke again, which wouldn't be that big a deal, except this messes up replication. I kicked it every few hours over the past couple of days which didn't help very much. So we're reloading the replica from scratch yet again. This'll take some time, so the recovery from today's regular outage may be particularly painful.

Meanwhile a random drive on thumper failed. No surprise - there are 48 drives in that thing. It's RAIDed, we're getting a spare from Sun, no big deal. Still, this will exercise our problems with rebooting thumper at this point - so this bumps up in priority our need to reinstall the OS on the thing.

I'm still trying to move data from our archives up here for Astropulse as fast as I can. We have over 100 files yet to transfer. I hope we get the data recorder back in working order before we use up all these files.

- Matt

Welcome back... :) I see the AP Splitters are running,not very fast but running none the less. At least that's a good thing. Here's hoping the replica doesn't stay down too long. Also good that Sun is still backing us up. They have been a good friend over the years.

Thanks again for all you guys do to keep us up and crunching. Here's to another ten years.

I haven't been able to get sufficient material for my MAC for the last few days though.

Query - why has the "science status" page not been updated since May 7? I thought we had fixed that...

Ouch! Is that a 'Royal' 'We' or are you yourself hacking away at the status updates at this very moment?

Otherwise, I guess we'll just have to wait for all one of Matt to give the relevant bit a kick.

There might be a bit of a hang-up whilst the replica database is reworked...

Hang in there!

Cheers,
Martin

That would be 'pluralis maiestatis', but perhaps it was 'pluralis modestiae'.

In dubio pro reo ;-)

I meant we, as in me, as I'm the only one that seems to point out that the page is broken; and Matt &/or the staff, who fixes it!

Thanks very much for letting us look at the real database for a time while the replica was catching up.

Oh yeah - people were asking: I'm not sure when video of our anniversary talks will become available. The students involved in the filming/editing are also working on SERENDIP V, and they're in a mad scramble to get that ready for deployment down at Arecibo next week.
