MAINTENANCE DOWNTIME - early Thursday AM 11/4/2010
« on: November 03, 2010, 06:10:24 PM »
All-

There will be a brief period of downtime late tonight/early tomorrow morning as I upgrade the board software to the latest and greatest version.  The upgrade itself is very minor and I don't anticipate any problems, but to be safe I plan to put the forum into maintenance mode, back up everything, then perform the upgrade.

The entire process should only take about 15 minutes, and I anticipate that I'll start around 3am EDT on 11/4.  Should there be a longer than anticipated amount of downtime, I will update the front page at http://lvadvice.com/ with more information.

As I mentioned, this is a very minor update and should go very smoothly.  This update addresses some minor behind-the-scenes bugs -- users will not see any significant changes at all in how the forum operates.

Good luck and thanks for taking this on, Kevin; I know what it means when the IT people at work do the minor software upgrades.  Maybe I'll light a candle for you.

Haha, no worries -- I looked at the code and it's all very minor stuff.  It'll take longer to generate the backup than to actually do the upgrade.

...and, all done!  As predicted, longer to backup than to actually do the upgrade.  Good deal.  Enjoy!    :)
