Power outage in Hannover brought BRP servers down

Last night a power outage throughout Hannover brought down the AEI machines, including the Einstein@home servers that run the BRP (Binary Radio Pulsar) and FGRP (Fermi-LAT Gamma-Ray Pulsar) searches. We are working to bring the servers up again, but there will be no downloads, uploads, validation etc. for (hopefully only) another few hours.

Power outage in Hannover brought BRP servers down

Seems to be ok now.
13 taks uploaded and 14 allready downloaded and another 8 underway. These PM-tasks are a bit slow in downloadspead, just about 5% of that of the GW-files. But it runs well, takes just time. Pobably just a question of serverload. As long as they become finished before they will be used, it´s ok.

Kind regards
Martin

Yeah. I was in a hotel than night and it suddenly became dark, all the city, all the buildings, including ANZEIGER building, that I see from my window. But what it was? I yet don't know. Power storm?
