The Brookhaven network has decided it's allergic to my computer and is throwing a "cybersecurity alert" and has isolated it from the network.  So the stats can't update until that's sorted out.  Slightly complicated because we may have a blizzard tomorrow and the lab may shut.  But I'll see if I can get it unblocked.

Yes, they didn't turn up before the laboratory shut, will try again tomorrow depending on snow etc.

Tomorrow (Weds) they're shut all day because of snow.  So it'll be Thursday.  In fact their 72-hour block expires on Thursday regardless, so if it's a false positive it might just clear.  I'd rather they explained what it is, though.  There's a tendency for these systems to just say "Your computer was quarantined because of badness" without explaining what sort of badness or what rule was triggered.

So today they locked me out of my workstation for a couple of hours while the remotely performed a virus scan, then let me back on.  No explanation of what had gone wrong but at least the stats came back up.

I just recently have had my antivirus Avast flag the viewresults program and close it out on me.  I had to add it to my whitelist to even run it.  you never can tell sometimes what trips the network security triggers.
