Term Browser 

There was an issue last Thursday where the browsers become unuseable due to a configuration change made at the NIH level.  To eleviate the issue temporarily, the Term Browser is now using SSL.  We are still having an issue with the Graph

Just got word from Mikol that the browser Appscan has been running non stop for the last the month is only at 86% complete. We are going to wait until Monday to see if it completes.  We will then follow up with a more monitored AppScan to see why it is so slow.  It has currently been running for 10 days.
