Here's the word from the USGS.  Cheers, John

    Because of Department of Interior security requirements, we had to
    install a number of new routers in our internal network. At that point
    some of our processes that depended on communication between different
    subnets stopped working. In other words, some of our programs broke.
    Most of the problems were fixed on the first day, but we are still
    unable to compute the moment tensors.

    We have been working on a new, faster experimental system, with an
    improved user interface, for generating the moment tensors. Since this
    is the direction we were already committed to, we have decided to
    accelerate implementation of the new system. In the near future we hope
    to be computing moment tensors again, using the new system.

    You may want to take a look at the USGS Earthquake Notification Service
    (ENS) at These notifications,
    at this time, will not include the "beachball", but will be A LOT
    faster. They are also very easy to customize in terms of geographic
    region(s) of interest and magnitude threshold. You may end up preferring
    these to the moment tensor solutions.
