All systems are go again!

As many of you have noticed the servers are up.  Here is the official word:
"April 30, 2001
Yesterday, the informix engine running our science database hung, apparently with a resource contention. It did so again today. We are looking into the cause. We did take advantage of the downtime to upgrade the science DB machine (one of the Sun E450's). We added 2 more CPUs and another .5GB of real memory."

If you are having problems now let me know through email... cheers Zain. setiathall@email.com
