    So the boards need a restart for the database server, as well as a reboot or two to take advantage of more hardware resources on the host. I'll be doing this at 9PM PDT on 4/27 (4AM UTC on 4/28). The maintenance will take up to 3 hours, and the boards will probably be up and down during that time.

    Would be a cool time to run a game of sorts on #owah to entertain the folks who can't scratch their posting itch. :bubble

    I think it would be a super fun time! We could even set up other temporary channels for multiple types of games at once. :D

    Fifteen minute warning 'til the window opens!

    When in danger, or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout.

    Yep, all done. Our server is now slightly faster and cheaper (yay Linode's upgrades!)

    Guessing we're not on the Fremont DC? Lol. I'm still waiting for my hardware upgrades to VMs. May have to migrate.
