Planned maintenance:

  • Room 002 network switch firmware updates.
  • Minor network configuration modifications.

Systems Down: Tuesday, December 5, 2006

Tuesday, December 5th, 2006

We are experiencing difficulties and our systems are down due to a problem with our main file system server, depot. We are working the problem but do not have an estimate for when we will be back online.

UPDATE (9:45am): Systems are back online. As a result of the trouble, there was a short window where incoming mail was bounced back to the sender. Also, expect mail to operate slower than normal for a few hours while the backlog is processed.
