Rosetta@home has experienced a horrendous hardware/fireware failure. We essentially lost the SAN partition upon which the project was running! The newest edition of our SAN hardware was shipped with a firmware revision that contained an insidious bug - one which caused the new SAN disks to vanish after roughly 45 days of service. We - or rather I (KEL) - apologize for the inconveinence, lost time and lost effort that you have endured during our outage. We know full well that your contribution hinges on the understanding that we make maximum use of your valuable resources - that we not waste your time, CPU cylces or good humor. We are planning to express our disappointment to our vendors in clear terms, specifically siting the importance of this project to our research effort. We'll keep you abreast of the outcome.
