Our server hosting company will be doing maintenance this upcoming Friday July 27th which will take the 154/vicandsade/etc server offline. The outage period will begin some time Friday evening and will end by late Saturday afternoon - which means we don't know exactly when the downtime will occur but we should be offline between eight to twelve hours only (not the full outage period).

Please note that in the event their maintenance results in hardware difficulties requiring a reupload of any sites, I will restore the forum first so that communication channels will be closed for the shortest possible time.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

I am concerned some of us will experience withdrawal symptoms not being able to check out 154 for several hours. We do appreciate the work you do to keep this site available for us, Phineus.

> maintenance goes well

This 'should' go smoothly.


> there goes your weekend...

The worse case scenario has us out for a couple hours extra, nothing worse. Uploading files, of course, would take a bit longer but thankfully we don't put all our eggs in one basket (we're using three servers) so even that won't be a catastrophe. Once upon a time I had a server attacked and completely destroyed, and we were back online in an hour and a half.


> no one in chicago

Nope. whew!


> withdrawal

The only consolation I can offer is that it won't last long. Your addiction is safe with us ;-)

Appreciate the 'heads up', Phinny. I get kinda panicky when unable to browse these forums without knowing why it won't load. Shocked

Thanks for heads up Phineus,

Interestingly enough I will be out of town this weekend so I won't have to go through withdrawals while sitting at my comp!! Laughing Laughing

I hope everything goes well.

Do you know if any of this maintenance will improve the forum in any way or are they just doing preventative maintenance things?

They are doing internal restructuring. It has very little to do with us and because of that we can hope that nothing of consequence will happen. For what it's worth, we're already on a fast connection and can transfer as much as one ethernet card can handle. The gildy and smallhouse servers are on a different network and help take the load off this one. But I'm of the school that teaches if something isn't broken then you should leave well enough alone - if you can't make it better you can only make it worse - so fiddling about like this never sits well with me until it's over.

I agree, Phineus.

They are changing out our server at work next week and I'm saving all my files to MediaMax (isn't that ironic), in case they screw it up!

Just remember that Murphy's Law supersedes all other laws. Thanks for the heads up. Now I won't begin to panic until Sunday morning. Good luck!

charlie1,

Also remember that O'Brien said Murphy was an optimist.

You called it. Hopefully things will be okay from here on out.


Thanks for everybody's patience.
