Board downtime tonight, 8/21/12

Post by kmax » Tue Aug 21, 2012 9:39 am

Guys, I will be doing some site maintenance and upgrades tonight to try and help stave off any of the board slowdowns that we have experienced in the past when we get busier during the season. The downtimes should be minimal, but I can't give exact times or durations so if you stop by tonight and can't get on to the site, please just give it a bit and then try again. Thanks everyone.

Thanks for the headsup and for the work in maintaining the site.


Now sorry for caring about Cat/griz too much. I've been properly chastised by the coach of the other team. :-^

I would much rather have the downtime now rather than during the season when everyone is making good comments on the board............is part of the upgrade a censor to keep the boneheaded comments off the board [-X

Yep, after the downtime posts such as this will be automatically deleted. ;)

I kid. Unfortunately I don't think we've gotten that advanced yet. The ignore user option is still your best defense in that regard.

Alright, all actions that I had planned for tonight are completed. May have some more over the weekend as I look at a few more things but you shouldn't see any further disruptions tonight.
