Update: After reaching a logical (i.e. not physical) limitation in our science database we had to rebuild one table. No data were lost. We resumed normal operations today around noon.

We hit a storage limitation in our science database. Everything is okay but we will remain down, at least overnight, to run various tests.


Thanks for the explanation, Matt. It doesn't change anything, but it makes us feel better just knowing that you know what's happened.

Glad to be back?

We're glad to have you back.

Hope your hiatus was a good one.

Thanks for the update. It's Tuesday night here, so technically the outage is still on :P I am not too worried. You guys always pull through.

I've been bussy with other things, hope you didn't have to cut short what you were doing.

And as always, I/we thank you for the update(s) and I hope you can fix the storage troubles without too much hassle.

Welcome home Matt.

Its a shame the fire hose needed to be reeled out upon your return. Aside from that I hope it was a good tour.

That's OK. I have ET trapped in my closet, so there's no need to look for ET any longer.
This is a test of the Emergency Moron System. Had there been a real moron in the room, there would've been a small mushroom cloud in the place where the idiot had been standing.

I am under the impression the site is still down due to storage issues. Is there an update as to when the site will resume projects? Thank you in advance for the assist in this issue.
