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.

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.

Thanks for the heads up Matt. It's good to know you are aware of what the problem is, and that it is being worked on. Good luck with it.

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.

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.
