One of our datacenter providers has been told by a local power company that they have to physically move one of their fiber optic cables to make way for new power infrastructure. Unfortunately this process can take anywhere from 3 – 6 hours and would affect our services. To avoid this affecting any services we will need to have a short maintenance window on Tuesday 3/29 at 2AM EST. This maintenance window should last no more than an hour and during it we will have logins and uploads disabled. Media downloads will continue to work without interruption.
UPDATE: 4:30 AM EST – The maintenance window is complete and all services are fully turned back on. Media downloads, rss feeds and blogs were unaffected by this.
