Hello everyone,

As part of our system maintenance and development, we are planning on purging our current aavsonet user space on the AAVSO ftp site beginning September 30, 2014.  If you have been using this space as backup storage for old images, please find a new home for these files on a local machine; the AAVSO ftp site is becoming unwieldy, and was not intended to be used as long-term storage.  Note this is the AAVSO ftp site at Headquarters, not the VPhot server.

Beginning September 30, we will institute a daily purging of any file with a modification time older than 365 days.  On October 1, we will purge all files more than a year old.  Thereafter we will perform a daily, incremental purge of anything that expires as of that date.

We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.

Clear skies,


AAVSO 49 Bay State Rd. Cambridge, MA 02138 617-354-0484
