Year End Infrastructure Upgrades – Completed

QuakeFinder has switched its internal processing over to a much larger disc array, and made several other process refinements.  Our estimate was four days of outage and we got it done in three.  We will be paying close attention over the next several days to make sure everything is working.  Thanks to everyone who helped out!

Holiday Wishes

We at Stellar Solutions/QuakeFinder wish a special Happy Holidays all our “hosts” who let us use their property for our instruments, all of our sponsors (Stellar Solutions, NASA, Musk Foundation, PG&E, Telefonica-Peru, and Vodafone) for all their generous support, all our collaborators (PUCP-Peru, NCU-Taiwan, NOA-Greece, SETI in California, Stanford Geophysics, and USGS), and you, or web visitors, who are interested in our research and progress.  It has been a great year, getting our instrument count well over 100 sites, upgrading our website, and getting closer to understanding our “restless Earth” and her frequent outbursts, aka–earthquakes.  The best to you and your families and the warmest wishes for a happy and safe New Year.

New QuakeFinder Web Site

We rolled out our new website yesterday morning. It has a wider format, better handling of user accounts, and is more secure than our prior implementation. We are still ironing out a few ripples that have cropped up, mostly having to do with transferring user accounts from the old web framework to the new one. Some of you who joined in the time period 12/14 – 12/19 will be receiving an email regarding how to re-activate your accounts. Thanks to everyone who pitched in to complete the project!!
