How did we manage to have an outage without the Crickets taking a dive?

They always leave the upload and download servers running during the outage. They only shut down the scheduling server.

Yes, but with the scheduler shut down, no new downloads should be entering the queue. It's very rare that there are so many tasks waiting to download at the beginning of the outage that we keep Cricket maxxed the whole time - I think I've only seen that once before.

But that seems to have been an extremely short outage. :-)

I've got downloads backed up from here to Kalamazoo. So it looks like things will be pegged for quite some time. :/
