An email from my hosting provider:

We are contacting you to inform you about some upcoming scheduled maintenance. To prevent power issues, we are moving your server to a different Network Rack. This will be performed on multiple servers and we will start it at 9AM CST on July 12th, 2012.
Estimated downtime for each server will be 20-30 minutes. Please note that this is being done just to avoid any major downtime due to power loss.

They didn't mention how many servers they have to upgrade?

They're just doing some moves, but un-racking a server and setting it up on a new one can be timely. No idea how many they have planned as part of this move, but I know they have tons of servers!

I am guessing that RSR will be blaming the downtime on Obama's socialist policies. :cool:

No, his energy policies clearly had a hand in this!

Why would he do that gabby. It would be more fitting, and highly Liberally acceptable to just BLAME YOU instead.
