Dear all,

Thank you for your patience during the disruption on 22-23 June.

Some of you will have noticed continued disruption early last week, and 
a delay on new datasets being registered and indexed. This had two main 
causes: on Friday we found that the university network staff do not 
offer any support after 15:00 or at weekends, and on Monday we 
overloaded the power supply to one of our new racks.

All systems are now running smoothly.  We have more reliable power and 
cooling in the datacentre, and a faster (10Gb/s) internet connection.

If you are still experiencing any problems accessing GBIF.org or other 
services (including TDWG.org), please let us know.

Thank you,

Matt Blissett

PS — the 17 July deadline for the developer job is approaching:
