|Celebrating 10 years of LOVD (2)
Once a month, we have a joint morning coffee break of the entire Human Genetics department at the Leiden University Medical Center. This time we had nice small LOVD3 cakes celebrating the LOVD3 release and the 10th anniversary of LOVD. Johan den Dunnen named a few of LOVD's main successes over the last 10 years and LOVD's main developer Ivo Fokkema got a nice gift: a sweater with the LOVD3 logo and the text "LOVD's main brain", which he claims to wear with great pride.|
|Power failure affecting chromium.liacs.nl server
|Due to a major power failure this morning at the Leiden University and Leiden University Medical Center, one of our LOVD servers (chromium.liacs.nl) is only responding to its IP address 184.108.40.206. So you can find the LOVD databases for instance on:|
This is a temporary problem that we hope will be fixed soon.
Update 16:18 CET: Everything is fixed now, chromium.liacs.nl is up again!
|LOVD 3.0 build 01 released!!!
|LOVD 3.0 build 01 has been released! After more than three years of hard work, LOVD 3.0 has now reached the stable phase. We believe LOVD 3.0 now is stable enough to be used in production environment. If you're interested in using LOVD 3.0, but rather not want to deal with installing it yourself on a server of your own, contact us! Our shared LOVD 3.0 installation, where 20 curators currently supervise 1744 genes with 16871 variants, is available to you.|
