There will be a security update during ONE of these time periods this week:

Thursday Oct. 25th, 10pm - 10am ET
 
 Friday Oct. 26th, 10pm - 10am ET
 
 Saturday Oct 27th, 10pm - 10am ET

I am told this will require a REBOOT which may cause a (hopefully) brief downtime. Estimated time minutes to...an hour-ish? ???

So if you are unable to log in during this time, just check back in a short while. We have no control/choice in the timing.

As always if you have an ongoing issue needing help you can reach me by email (in my profile, perhaps save the info?)  or twitter private message (@peachrff).

Message from the Server Folks:

Quote
We have scheduled the first of two maintenance windows to provide necessary upgrades to core network equipment that will be performed from 10:00PM EDT Friday, November 2nd through 7:00AM EDT Saturday, November 3rd.

During this maintenance window the most you should witness are potential brief periods of increased latency and/or packet loss.
