As you’ve probably already noticed, the website is again available via the URL. E-mail is still down and any E-mail that is being sent to ECRL addresses is bouncing back as undeliverable. Andy has been working on E-mail installation all day, and will continue tomorrow. When it comes back up we will be contacting staff members with new user names and passwords.
I’ve received a number of phone calls from Minnesota library colleagues asking if we’re “OK.” I guess when they sent E-mail to ECRL that bounced there were flashbacks of last year’s ECRL server crash. I’ve assured the other regions and others in the state network that restoration is under control.
We had an Internet interruption at Cambridge earlier this afternoon that was unrelated. Andy immediately called OET, and Internet connectivity resumed shortly, although OET said they didn’t know why it was down.
