Good morning,

 

The main site hard drive has begun to experience some errors that indicate it is drawing to the end of it's life so we have opted to have it replaced this evening. This means that the site will be offline from 7PM EST for somewhere between 6 to 8 hours.

 

The upshot of this is that we will have a nice healthy new drive to pile our stuff onto :)

 

Let me know if you have any questions - and may I direct your attention to the Donations button or even to the Patron sign up to keep this stuff possible :) Support the site - you know you want to :)

The drive has been updated successfully and the server will be returned to the datacenter tonight at 3AM EST - there may be a short 15 minute downtime at this time as they move it from the workbench back to its little house :)

 

Let me know if you spot anything untoward...

 

Cheers
