Scheduled maintenance, 2015-12-15
« on: December 13, 2015, 12:47:43 AM »
The forum, wiki and IRC will be going offline for up to two hours on 2015-12-15, between 10:00 and 12:00 UTC.

For convenience, this means:

EST (USA east coast):
2015-12-15, 05:00-07:00

UTC (UK):
2015-12-15, 10:00-12:00

AEDT (Australia east coast):
2015-12-15, 21:00-23:00


This maintenance is being initiated by the hosting provider in order to rectify a security issue with the virtualisation software used for the VPS. While there is a two-hour window allocated, the actual downtime will likely be much less. For more information, see the Linode status page for this maintenance.

We will be taking this opportunity to install security updates. These will be non-disruptive to functionality, as the server is running a stable OS release that gets critical fixes only.

This maintenance window will start in 4 minutes. Because it is being initiated by the hosting provider, I do not know precisely when the server will go down. However, normal operation will return within 2 hours.
