Dear Colleagues,

  as a result of the increased frequency of wildfires in California the power company is taking steps to reduce risk under certain weather conditions. This entails shutting down electricity to regions that are experiencing dry windy conditions. They are predicting that Monday or Tuesday this coming week (September 23/24) might meet their criteria for a shutdown in the Bay Area. Hopefully this is just a worst case prediction and nothing will happen. However, there is a possibility that the Berkeley servers will be down for some time during that period (duration unknown). This will affect:

- The Phenix web site (http://phenix-online.org/)
- The DIALS West web site (http://dials.lbl.gov/)
- The CCI web site (http://cci.lbl.gov/)
- The Structural Biology Technology Portal (http://technology.sbkb.org/)

  Bug reports and emails requesting help should be queued and we will receive them once the servers are back online. We apologize for any inconvenience.
