Scheduled maintenance, 2014-09-20
« on: September 13, 2014, 08:18:30 AM »
The forum, wiki and IRC will be going offline for about five minutes on 2014-09-20, between 07:00 and 07:15 UTC.

For convenience, this means:

EDT (USA east coast):
2014-09-20, 03:00-03:15

BST (UK):
2014-09-20, 08:00-08:15

AEST (Australia east coast):
2014-09-20, 17:00-17:15


The intent is to install security updates on the server which hosts the forum, wiki and IRC. These will be non-disruptive to functionality, as the server is running a stable OS release that gets critical fixes only.

We were down for slightly longer than intended, due to some unintended problems with the server. The problems weren't related to the updates, but they hadn't manifested themselves until the server was rebooted to use the updated packages.

I've worked around them for now, and I'll be working to resolve them to avoid a recurrence. Apologies for the inconvenience, and thanks for flying Flat Earth Society.

Update: I've fixed the main problem that caused the delay. In short, sysvinit is weird. systemd can't come soon enough.

Good work! You are a technical master and a scholar, and we all owe you our lives.
