AAVSONet Processing Suspended For Weekend

We recently released a significant update to the backend systems for the AAVSO website. While most of the bugs introduced by this update have been fixed, there may still be problems we haven't fixed. If you run into a problem, please email webmaster@aavso.org

Folks:

We've discovered that we need to shuffle our disk space around a bit on VPhot. We HAVE the space, but we discovered this afternoon that we need to move things into different buckets. I have cleaned up things as much as I can, but the drive where the images are stored for the users after they are processed automatically needs to be changed. There is just 4.5GB left on that drive right now. That SHOULD be enough space to survive over the weekend, but I used 1.5GB in processing today. If we run out of space on that drive, no one will be able to use VPhot for image manipulation so we don't want that to happen.

So, in consultation with Arne, I've suspended AAVSONet processing over the weekend. We will catch up on the Saturday and Sunday AAVSONet processing on Monday and Tuesday after I work with Geir to move the Images folder to a disk with more space.

Thanks!
