The new server configuration is finally online. The "science" part of the database
(tapes,workunits, spikes, gaussians) has been moved to the 450. Several tables
were frozen while this was in progress; that's why our statistics flatlined for a
few days. Most of our software had to be modified to use the correct database.

Over the past weekend we experienced a combination of server crashes and
university wide network problems. The network problems were resolved on
Monday. We have installed the most up to date kernel patch to our data server.
In addition, we are exploring possible SCSI bus issues, also on the data server.
Because of the lengthy outages, we had a backlog of connection requests all
day yesterday which resulted in widespread inability to connect.
