AFN Web Pages Back In Operation...

  The problems with AFN have now have been fixed. Summarizing...

  Early yesterday morning, around 3am, FTP access to AFN had failed. The AC-EMWIN server was logging repetitive errors in communicating with the AFN server. During this time, no weather bulletins or graphics were able to be uploaded to the AC-SKYWARN web site. However, the AFN web pages were at least *accessible*, if but for some broken image links, such as the watch/warning map, the accompanying legend, and the current readings graphic for the Gainesville Regional Airport. The problem remained for the whole day due to the fact that it was a Sunday and there was no one at CNS to take care of the problem. AFN web access and email finally died altogether sometime around 7pm, last night, and remained that way until about 9am, this morning, when AFN admin was finally able to get right on it.
  Meanwhile, AC-EMWIN services to email, cellphone, pager, FAX, listgroups, Facebook, and Twitter were NOT affected by the AFN outage, and continued uninterrupted.

  An email from AFN admin this morning confirmed that a file system had filled up and had to be manually emptied.

  The following web pages are again operational:

  We'd like to thank everyone for their patience in dealing with this.

  Kudos to the AFN team for getting on it pronto, this morning. Thanks guys! You rock!

AFN FTP Down...

It appears AFN (Alachua FreeNet) FTP is down. The web pages seem to pull up okay, but nothing new is being sent to AFN. This means that anything
that is FTP'd to the site (bulletins, graphics) are not being updated, right now.

I've confirmed this with the AC-EMWIN server and it is definitely experiencing errors whenever it tries to connect to AFN. It began about 3am, last night. Of course, this is occuring on a SUNDAY. :( I *have* sent emails to AFN admin about it, though.

Note that this ONLY affects things under AFN, not with the entire AC-EMWIN system. That is, bulletins sent to email, pagers, cellphones, listgroup mail, Facebook, Twitter...these are all okay and unaffected.
