Message from the Project Team: Unscheduled Downtime - Fire in local electricity substation

Our apologies for the unscheduled downtime of the project over these last few days, unfortunately the facilities hosting the servers of suffered a number of consecutive power outages over the weekend these were the result of a fire in the electricity substation for the area.

Over the last few days project staff have been working to stagger the restoration of services. The CPDN BOINC back-end service has now been restored and uploads should now be proceeding.

We thank you for your patience over these last few days as the project staff have been dealing with this issue.
