Continuing Downtime

The downtime that began on 7/28 is expected to continue for a few more days as campus electricians procure parts to complete the electrical work. If there are no other unanticipated delays, we should be back up in the coming days.

We apologize for the downtime and inconvenience.

UPDATE: The electrical work will be completed by Friday, August 14, at 4 PM. Unfortunately, we have very limited staff presence in the Berkeley area due to the summer vacation, so it may take some time to get everything up and running.

SECOND UPDATE (14-Aug-2009, 3 PM): The electrical work is mostly complete, and power has been restored to our server room. Unfortunately, something happened to our network uplink during the downtime (maybe someone forgot to turn a switch back on), so we have no Internet access. We're looking into it.

THIRD UPDATE (18-Aug-2009, 4 PM): A campus network technician is working on restoring connectivity to the OCF. The cause of the problem is still undetermined, but we're pressuring them to get things fixed ASAP.
