    Starting 5PM Pacific Wednesday / 00:00 UTC Thursday, I'll be taking the Tower database offline to fix backups then restart to take advantage of a hardware upgrade.

    Took a bit longer than expected. The server migration to take advantage of new hardware didn't go well and I had to contact Linode's support to fix it on their end. All back now, and with lots more disk space and fully-functional backups.
