The FTP server at `ncmir.ucsd.edu' is back up and running. The
uncooperative server decided, for reasons of its own, to cooperate
again. The ways of servers are sometimes more inscrutable than the
mysteries of FL_CANVAS. :-)
Sorry for the interruption in service.
BTW, on that note, NCMIR (The National Center for Microscopy and
Imaging Research <http://ncmir.ucsd.edu>), whence this message
originates, will experience some major changes in our computing and
lab environments over the next few months, including adding new
servers and upgrading our network connectivity.
In fact, my group be moving into an entirely new lab facility which is
in the latter stages of construction as I write this (the sounds of
Sawzalls, Ramsets, and drywall screw guns ring in my ears as I go home
During this move there may be some FTP service interruptions as we
switch over to new networking hardware, etc. I hope that they'll be
of short duration but you never know. Whatever our mirror site
partners can do to make sure that they're always current will be
appreciated and should make the transition go smoothly.
Since the schedule is dependent on completion of building renovations
and arrival of hardware, I don't have a schedule yet. I'll certainly
try to provide adequate advance notice whenever possible.
