Unscheduled Sunlab outage - resolved

This morning - September 28th - some electricians came to replace some of the lights in the Sunlab. In the process, for reasons that remain unclear to us, they threw some breakers that resulted in every computer in the entire room losing power.

We've brought all the computers back online. However, anyone logged in at the time, whether in person or over ssh or FastX, will have lost their session and any unsaved work.  ssh and FastX access would also have been unavailable to any users trying to start new sessions at the time.

Apologies for this new unexpected inconvenience on top of all of our ongoing login issues this semester.
