Hi All,
Just wanted to let you know that there have been some recent
interruptions in both SOHO and STEREO data due to DSN problems. 
Specifically, the Madrid DSN station has been impacted by a lot of 
snow, and - from what I understand - this has limited its ability to
move and point to different spacecraft. So as a consequence, we will
have lost quite a lot of data from both of these missions in the past
few days.
Best wishes,
Karl

Hi All,

Just a quick note about the status of the new website. I have received
a lot of feedback from several people and, thanks to the emails and the
testing you've done on the site, have identified a handful of issues 
that I need to fix before we launch it. I hope that we can get these
fixed within the next few days. I will give you all warning when we do
the switch to the new site, as it will probably mean the entire site 
being offline for a couple of hours (or maybe a day, if there are more
bugs that appear...). 

Happy New Year to you all!

Best wishes,
Karl
