Return of the Possible Downtime

Post by Bryn Mawr »

I hope that the title of this thread is not inviting problems after the five days of disaster we went through last time we tried to upgrade the system but ...

At about 15:00 BST (GMT+1) tomorrow the system will come down, hopefully for three hours or less, to perform necessary maintenance.

Once the system is back there will be a period of checkout to ensure that all is well, if problems are found at this point we will have to revert to the backup and any posts made in the interim will be lost. Obviously we will make every endeavour not to do this but past experience says it might happen.

We will keep you updated during this period.

Thank you, Bryn for the 'heads up'.

You do an excellent job with running this forum and after running one myself years ago I know what is involved.

Thank you.

Keep this in mind, we're about five hours before I get started. I'm whetting my scalpel.
