VPhot Processing Again!
GRRRRRRR!!! Very sorry for the loss of functionality over the (US) holiday weekend! As Murphy would have it, things like this happen at the worst time.
I am writing a small guide for folks here at HQ to be able to restart the VPhot process should they see that it is stuck and hopefully this will improve our response time.
Having said that, this time getting VPhot to work again was not a simple task. There were seemingly several files uploaded during 4 July that caused the service to crash continually. Lew, I have no idea if the files were yours and I don't care. Don't blame yourself. This is something we have to look into, and I'm sure we can.
I expect VPhot to be caught up by, say, 1800UTC or a bit sooner. It had about 700 images to get through.
Thanks for your patience, folks! Looking forward to a better July than June was! :-)
