Mail problems and fire near SSL.

3 Aug 2017 | SciTech

The UC Berkeley Space Science Laboratory Domain Name Services (DNS) server has been having problems for the past 24 hours, and a wildlands fire near the Space Sciences Lab has prevented SSL personnel from fixing the problem. Because of this, any server functions (i.e. password reset, forum notifications) that require email interaction are not working for most people. If the problems continue tomorrow its likely that BOINC clients will eventually lose access to the SETI@home servers until the DNS server can be repaired. read more »
