We've been offline for over a month to remodel our database servers. The bulk of this work is complete, and work is being distributed. Please note we may continue to bring servers up/down over the next few weeks (outside of regularly planned outages) as we wrap up the final stages of this major endeavor.

Really great news, Matt, et al! Thank you all!

Could you please estimate whether regular weekly 3-day outages will continue to be a routine staple of life, or will you be able to do the science work while the distribution of WUs continues?

I assume Tuesday downtime will continue for backups.

Thx again.

We are really pleased to see you and the guys back Matt, it has been worth waiting for. I hope the new kit will make a substantial difference to the projects uptime in the future. Thank you for all your hard work it has really been appreciated.

This great news! For some reason my AMD64 machines are not being given any work to do, but my 32 bit machines are humming away. Is there any reason for this? Thanks, again, for all the hard work!

Good to see the project back up. Looking forward to crunching the Byrd data. Keep us up to date on that.. A BB link to Berkeley ought to be considered...

I have to say it's lovely to see all these first-posters coming out of the proverbial woodwork. Makes you realise what amazing resources we have out there.

Keep it up everyone :)!
