Short outage Sunday 11/27/16 for server reboot
« on: November 26, 2016, 01:33:44 PM »
It's time for an operating system update on both of Jack's dedicated servers.  This will happen around 11AM-12noon(ish) on Sunday 11/27.  Expect a several-minute outage on all of Jack's websites (including this one).

The bad drive on the UK server was hot swapped and should be good to go.
