CONE Welder Temporarily Down

I just received the following email from loughman1:


This morning I sent a note to Goldberg, et al about the camera – see bottom message here – and received this note from Dez Song at TAMU. I’ve posted his note to Chat.

I’m sending this note to all the CONE-Welder players for whom I have e-mail addresses – fewer than a dozen. So feel free to forward the message to your best buddies.



Hi Kay,

We are aware of the problem and working on the issue. It is a network outage with possible equipment damage. We are trying to figure out what went wrong.

Would it be possible for you to give us a brief message in the News section of the Login page – something that says why, and when it is expected that the camera will be functioning again?

In the meantime, those suffering from withdrawal can check out grrlscientist’s “Mystery Bird of the Day” feature at Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted). I confess that that’s one of my favorite places to hide out lately when I’m not on CONE Welder.
