Planned outage

Mutter mutter routine maintenance mutter mutter oscillating framizam mutter mutter Vulcan nerve pinch.

From approximately noon until two of the clock, this website (and all others using may be unavailable due to highly skilled, underpaid, and overstressed employees poking the hard disk with a sharp pointy stick until it says "Ow!" and then magically works again for a few months until the next routine maintenance downtime. Or maybe they'll be braiding the Ethernet wires into cornrows; really, who can tell what they're doing in there?

For those of the non-Pacific temporal persuasion, that's from 20:00 to 22:00 UTC, where UTC is the politically correct indicator for GMT. In other words, twenty-hundred to twenty-two-hundred Zulu.

Please send thought waves of luscious chocolateness towards the server farm during those hours. Techies love chocolate.
