Another server reboot: Short outage Friday 12/28/18
« on: December 27, 2018, 06:33:34 PM »
On Fri 12/28/18 around 10 AM Pacific / 1 PM Eastern, Archer and I will be restarting both of Jack's servers in order to update some system software.

Usually this takes everything offline for about 5 minutes.

We'll be holding your beers and watching that.  :)

Thanks for everything you two do to keep this madhouse from melting down.

We dropped it some months back -- ditto for the forum sponsor ads (except for Doom & Bloom who prepaid for a long period).  Too much bookkeeping effort (and Paypal fees) for the amount we were bringing in.
