Dear NONMEM User Community:

After promising 2 weeks ago that the NONMEM Repository would be back on
line, the VA came in 10 days ago and took it off line again. I need to move
the server to the "DMZ" at the VA, and jump through a couple of additional
hoops. It should be back on line in a few days.

In the mean time, I'm going to look at having the system mirrored to help
get around these constant VA imposed interruptions. I apologize for the poor
service in the past few months - a consequence of cyber attacks, and the
government's response to that threat.

Thanks for your patience.

Dear Colleagues:

After several months of absence, the NONMEM repository is back up and
running. Changes in VA policy prevented me from continuing to host the
NONMEM Repository from my prior server. Fortunately, I have been able to
host the NONMEM Repository within the Department of Anesthesia at Stanford,
an environment considerable more amenable to the academic enterprise.

The new address of the PKPD Software Server is: From there you can get to the NONMEM
Repository. If you want to go directly to the repository, the direct address

Bill Bachman and I have been discussing migrating the NONMEM Repository to
GloboMax. Given GloboMax's role in supporting NONMEM, it is logical that
they would eventually maintain the NONMEM Repository. We anticipate the
Repository moving to GloboMax in the near future, but an exact date for the
transfer has not been set. In the mean time, you can again get to the files.

I apologize for the long down time of the PKPD Software Server and the
NONMEM Repository. I'm optimistic that the new server environment will offer
considerable improvements in providing both a stable infrastructure and
rational policy.

Best regards,
