Planned Downtime on 2018-07-24 and 2018-07-25

Our host, Pair.com , will be moving the machines from *BSD to Ubuntu. The move will happen in stages and should take only 20 minutes per machine.

There will be at least a downtime of 20 minutes when the database machine will be offline. We don't foresee other downtimes, but as we move to a new environment, there might be some unforeseen interactions that take longer to resolve.

    Thank you for the notice.

    Having been on both sides of the support desk, I know very well that unforeseen things happen. If they do, will there be anywhere in particular we "average" users should look for information, news, or instructions?

    Here's hoping it will be an uneventful, business as usual event.

      I think erzuuli has an official Twitter account, and there always is #perlmonks on irc.perl.org where people can congregate.

      If there are delays or anything, hopefully I can at least update index.html to keep you up to date.

    I'm intrigued .. pair Networks has been a FreeBSD shop since way back when. I wonder what has prompted the move to Ubuntu.

    Thanks PJ. We owe you so much. Groklaw -- RIP -- 2003 to 2013.

      As far as I am aware, it is mostly SPECTRE mitigation that prompts the move.
