During a computer upgrade at the NCEDC, the disk drive holding the current queue of NetDC, BREQ_FAST, and EVT_FAST request died. We restored the filesystem from backup tapes, but are unable to recover any unprocessed requests. If you recently submitted a request for data and did not receive a reply with the data's URL for pickup, please resubmit your request.
