May 17, 2012 Update

Hello Everyone:

Here's a newsletter to let everyone know about our new projects.

1. Project One is a test run of hard drive transport cases.  Currently SETI at Home is using only the original cardboard and foam boxes the drives were originally purchased in.  In light of this we have decided to purchase two QTY 20 hard drive cases for them to try out.  These cases are made by the Turtle Company and are airtight, crushproof, filled with anti static slotted foam and are pressure regulated.

Update on SETI @ Home Outage

Here's a quick update on the outage for interested parties:

A 15kV underground power line heading from the campus power substation to the hill that houses the SETI at Home lab shorted out around 2030 on Tuesday night.  PG&E, the local power company, has spent the last two days crawling the line from manhole to manhole looking for the problem.  Apparently while looking for the first short, they managed to cause another short in the line.

SETI @ Home Offline Due to Power Failure

Hello Everyone:

I wanted to briefly inform interested parties about the current SETI at Home outage.

The outage occurred on Monday night due to unknown reasons.  The service should be restored Thursday afternoon this week.  It's currently unclear when the project will come back online.  We'll keep everyone updated to any changes.

To follow updates from the University of Berkeley please see http://ucbsystems.org/category/active/unscheduled-outage/

Warmly,

Brad Deauman
