PaddyM crashed last night, possibly due to extra-high demand on its disks. It came back up OK, but in order to get things in a state where it won't happen again, we're going to have to do some shuffling.

In order to do the shuffling I've had to bring the Astropulse database back down for a while. That means we will probably run out of Astropulse work (if we haven't already). I'm hoping the file moving will go fast enough that I can bring AP back on line tonight, but I wouldn't say that I'm confident that will happen.

Thanks for the news. As we all know. Things will take however long they take. Just don't stay up all night staring it.

Thanks for the news, Eric.
Hope that the AP database recovery is complete sometime soon, and that helps things run smoother as well.

Best of luck with it all, I know how hard you are working to maintain project uptime.

Whenever it's ready to deliver AP's again, my computer is ready. No sweat, there's worse things brewing in 2015 than computer crashes.

It's good to see that with the bad news, comes some good.

With the down time you were able to get the assimilators running on AP so that you can finally see the science behind all the crunching that has be done.

Good work guys and gals!

Thank's again Eric and the team looks like all systems go all the servers are online (except splitters but normal when tapes run out) looks like everything is back to where we left off before original problem Bruno .Even running out of work on Sunday night 11.58pm here so fingers crossed you can all have a well deserved break .

Thanks again
