All CSDL servers will be down on and off starting on Monday 10/4/10 because of installation of new air conditioning. We hope to be back up late on 10/5/10, but this will depend on whether things go as planned with the contractor, etc. We have set up a twitter account for announcements that we may need to make while our servers are down. Follow @tamucsdl for those tweets.
