SAS / redpine Unavailable

SAS is unavailable temporarily because the only Sun Solaris system, redpine, has crashed. I am working to bring redpine back on-line. The department is reconsidering a linux license for SAS in the event that redpine isn't repairable (the cost for the linux version something line twenty times that of our current Solaris license, thus the reluctance to retire venerable redpine).

The plan, at present, is for the department to make SAS available one way or another.
