Potential Site Downtime 4-29 - 5-1
« on: April 29, 2012, 07:42:00 PM »
We've been informed by our host provider that our server will be going through a OS upgrade in the next 48 hours (yes, awesome notice they give.  Thanks Hostmonster ::) ).

Hopefully this goes better than the previous upgrade when we were down for nearly a week.  Although this time we are more prepared with better backups :).

Just a FYI in case you see the site unavailable in the coming days.

Thanks,

Wade

Yup. Btw, if anybody does happen to notice extended downtime, please post here once we are hopefully back online. Since much of this is done overnight, I may completely miss that it was done.

Surprised you don't have a WebSite monitoring service.
WatchMouse comes to mind...but there might be other alternatives out there.
