    Happens every day at noon and midnight. It's just site maintenance. :slight_smile: It's usually down for 20 minutes to half an hour. No big deal.

    No problem; most newbies don't know. :thumbsup: I didn't know that either for the first three months I was here.

    It's eventually going to be fixed so that backups won't take the site down. Unfortunately, it is complicated because it involves a major hardware/infrastructure upgrade, which we were attempting to hold off until we upgrade the software.

    The new software requires a newer version of the OS and database server software... Which is incompatible with our current software. So both basically need to happen together. And that process has been slow, in part because all the admins are stretched pretty thin.

    But... We are working on it slow but steady.

    Chip,

    I'm just sooooooo grateful for this site in the first place! Thank you!

    Just knowing when the maintenance windows are works for me; that's fine.

    - A very grateful Patrick
