OSCER users,

We're confirmed to move Boomer next week, Mon Jan 14 - Fri Jan 18.

We anticipate that Boomer will be completely inaccessible for that
entire period.

It's actually possible that the move will take more than just those
5 days of downtime, but we'll get it restored to service as quickly
as we possibly can.
