The UBC Chemistry building experienced  power bump. As a result most of Orcinus' computing nodes lost power. The jobs running on these nodes were lost. Please examine your intermediate data and resubmit the lost computations.

We have experienced the cooling issue with one of the MCS racks and unfortunately all jobs using the nodes within pack24, pack25 and pack26 were lost. Please check your intermediate data and resubmit the lost computations.

The nodes within pack24, pack25 and pack26 are not currently available. We will try to bring these nodes on-line ASAP.

Sorry for any inconveniences.
