Message 979205 - Posted: 15 Mar 2010, 23:46:54 UTC

I'm getting the shakes, too.

But don't forget that seti is not the only thing these guys do. Perhaps today is a big meeting with the Grant Review Board and they feel that getting some money for the project is important. Or perhaps today is the day they have to meet with a group of professors from around the world about remote sensing techniques for penetrating galactic scale molecular clouds. Anyway, this is just one project that they are working on so they may not have been working this problem from 8 to 5 as we might hope.

I really want it working too, but I can live with it no matter when it comes back online. Take a deep breath with me and we'll check back later.

Easy on eh? Does an outage really merit that level of vituperation? You know they are certainly aware of it AND are working on it. What more do you need to know until there's clearly something to say?

You know they are certainly aware of it AND are working on it.

Unfortunately, I was trained as a scientist, not a priest. I need evidence, rather than blind faith, in support of such an assertion. I've been looking for it, and so far I haven't found it.

Bit like SETI itself, really ;-)

Edit - but just as we enter Tuesday UTC, I see the 'Tuesday outage' notice appear on the front page. Does it usually appear as early as this, or is this a sign of life in the server closet?

I would try reading other threads first before starting a new one about the same subject.

Nah, that would require work eh?

The search function is probably invisible on many screens too....Remind me that I will have to take that up with someone in charge of the forum.

"Unfortunately, I was trained as a scientist, not a priest."

I'm just suggesting we extend a little good will. The opposite approach seems a little churlish to me, that's all. It doesn't take axiomatic proofs to discern that it would be highly improbable they're sitting with their feet up having a laugh, as has been implied.

Personally, I'm trained in the maths. Doesn't mean I don't believe in the best in folks 95% of the time.

The same thing is yet again happening. Uploads mostly failing at 0%, but some are completing to 100% and still failing and needing to be retried. It appears uploads have been broken for about a day, and they won't fix until the server is reset.

Edit: Three days as per below, which is the same duration as the last time.

Life on Front Page?

Probably not -- it is dated March 2

I did look OK? I did not see any official reason as to why the servers were down for so long, just a bunch of people posting the same as myself. But I'm an old man and perhaps missed something.

Instead of sneering at me perhaps a link to something official would help?

Thanks, glad I'm not alone. The Server Status page isn't much help.

Yes, it does. The ever increasing frequency and length of these outages will try anyone's patience. These outages have become a bi-weekly event. After almost eleven years of running servers, the Seti team would have it down pat.

That's 'normal' too!


Ya, seems like it has become the norm.

Sad to see as it wasn't always that way. :\


Semi-frequent interaction by the project leadership was always a welcome/comforting thing here. Was rather good for project PR too...
