  FYI, due to an extensive whole-building power outage,
the VMD web site, VMD-L mailing list, and emails to the
VMD development team will not be accessible or deliverable
for a period to begin sometime after 17:00UTC (noon CDT)
on Tuesday March 23.

Once it begins, the site-wide power outage is expected to
last until roughly 03:00 Wednesday UTC (10pm Tuesday CDT)
depending on when building power, cooling, and network operations
are restored, and laboratory staff access to the building and
machine rooms is again permitted, due to safety concerns.

In the worst case, if the building power project runs late into
the night, our systems may remain down until the following
morning CDT.

We will of course attempt to bring up the key computer systems
that serve the VMD/NAMD user community as early as possible
once the building power outage has concluded.

Best regards,
