This is just an early warning about possible problems you will hopefully not notice anything else of than this note.

The cooling system in the AEI cluster room has been giving us constant trouble for the past months. Luckily it was cold enough outside for the ATLAS computing cluster and the Einstein@Home machines (located in the same racks) to survive. But it's getting warmer these days, and we began to partially shut down the cluster machines. On Monday and Tuesday the AC will be shut down completely for a temporary replacement.

We are working hard behind the scenes to ensure that the Einstein@Home machines will continue to run, and ideally none of our participants should notice anything. But you never know what happens, especially when a couple of externals are running around - they may step upon a cable, blow a fuse or whatever. So you might want to prepare for the unexpected.

Affected services are: workunit generation, upload- and download server for BRP and FGRP searches, and the Europe download mirror for the GW search (S6Bucket / S6LV1) data.

"We have reached normality, I repeat we have normality. Anything you still cannot deal with is therefore your own problem."

Looks like the project survived without any apparent problems.
