    We need to pull some data from the database for migration testing, so the site could be down for anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour (or more). I fully expect this to only take 15-20 minutes, but it could go longer, just so everyone is aware. There's a full 2 hour period where this could occur, so expect to lose access anytime between 6PM and 10PM (EDT). But don't worry -- it should not take anywhere near that long.

    Please contact azi@tarvalon.net or technology@tarvalon.net if you have any questions/concerns, or post here. :)

    Should be +5 I think, for you. Does that make sense? I think you guys are 5 hours ahead of us...

    EDT is GMT-4, so that'd be 22:00-02:00 GMT

    It's a 5 hour difference currently between East Coast US/CA and the UK. Just to be clear :)

    It's a 4 hour difference between EDT and GMT because GMT doesn't observe Daylight Savings.

    If it wasn't for your help and patience, I would be stuck someplace, and everyone would move but me. It wouldn't be the first time I thought my computer was haunted, only to find out you have the answer to all things computer. I would be sending my husband to get some new part, when all I needed to do was wait for you to work your magic. Thanks for the heads up!
