There are certain times in life when we are forced to do that which we don’t want to do, something we resist, something we just don’t find comfortable. No matter how lucky we may be, eventually we each will find ourselves confronted with this truth. Tonight is a night (morning to the euros like @Atko) to remember as we both will be doing something other than that which we prefer.
For you this means finding a brief fling. Maybe a movie, perhaps a game of checkers with a longtime friend, or playing Mortal Kombat with a friend in Vietnam!. For us it means offering the traditional industry standard sacrifices in an attempt to win the favor of our Binary gods as we pray for an uneventful evening.
We’ve put it off because we like to play, but it can't be putted off any longer.
Tonight my friends, Voat will be doing maintenance. (finally)
We will start around 5AM GMT (10PM PST) and depending how things go it will be either an hour to as long as forever and ever1.
Thanks everyone. That's all.
- 3-4 hours is our highest estimate.
All the major and important things are now done. We do have some smaller issues we need to work out with cache and some connection limits so you might notice a few hiccups over the next few days as we look into these issues.
Thanks Vote. I'm tired, can you tell?
We are having IO issues on logged in users front pages. You may experience timeouts. We are working on it now. Sorry.
We think we have addressed the primary IO issue that was causing problems. It's a challenge to downgrade hardware in cost cutting attempts because it exposes issues that horsepower hides. Thanks again Voat for being patient with us during these times.
