Scheduled maintenance, 2017-05-04
« on: May 01, 2017, 03:58:22 AM »
The homepage, forum, wiki and IRC will be going offline for about five minutes on 2017-05-04, between 07:00 and 07:15 UTC.

For convenience, this means:

EDT (USA east coast):
2017-05-04, 03:00-03:15

BST (UK):
2017-05-04, 08:00-08:15

AEST (Australia east coast):
2017-05-04, 17:00-17:15


The intent is to install security updates on the server which hosts the homepage, 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.
I guess because I have a degree in Engineering I assumed it would be easy to understand.

The maintenance took longer than expected due to an issue with login credentials for the hosting provider's rescue console, so I couldn't make sure the system came back up. I will be investigating and fixing that tonight.

This maintenance is done.
