    Notice to all Berkeley UPC users:
    NERSC has scheduled a major outage for October 30 (next Monday) which will 
    last up to 48 hours, while the power system is upgraded in the machine room. 
    Most NERSC production systems will be off-line during that time - for details, 
    please see the full announcement link below.
    This outage is expected to affect the Berkeley UPC web site at 
    (downloads, documentation, publications, etc), which will be off-line during 
    the outage.
    The outage is *NOT* expected to affect the primary BUPC internet translator 
    ( so Berkeley UPC compilations using the internet 
    translator should be unaffected. Similarly, Berkeley Bugzilla and UPC Wiki 
    should also be unaffected.
    Thanks for your patience during this upgrade, and please direct any questions 
    to upc-users_at_lbl_dot_gov.

    >Greetings NERSC User,
    >There will be a major outage of all NERSC systems beginning
    >the morning of Monday, October 30, and lasting up to 48 hours.
    >Please note that the above date is 1 week from today.
    >This outage will affect all NERSC systems, including the MPP
    >compute platforms, HPSS, PDSF, NGF, and the NERSC website.
    >A preliminary schedule for shutting down these systems may
    >be found at:
    >The most important thing to notice about this schedule is that
    >all batch computing will be complete by 04:00 on the morning of
    >October 30.  HPSS access will be blocked at this time, both from
    >within NERSC and from sites outside NERSC.  Interactive access
    >to specific NERSC compute platforms may be available for a few
    >hours after this.  After 04:00, users should not depend on any
    >advance notice before the machines are powered down.
    >Please check the above the announcement frequently, as there
    >may be changes made to specific downtimes as our plans develop.
    >Best regards,
