This site is hosted on VertexHost, they'll be performing maintenance this weekend. More details are below. This will also affect bbiferry.com Somebody correct me if I should have used *effect*.

From support@vertexhost.com Date Mon 17:50

VertexHost.com will be performing maintenance on our network on Thursday, November 15th, Friday, November 16th, Saturday, November 17th and Sunday, November 18th in our Las Vegas, Nevada data center.

Who will be affected: All customers in our Las Vegas, Nevada data center. Note: Customers will not be affected every night, please read entire release for details.

Maintenance being done: We are pretty excited to be updating all of our network infrastructure. Our core router will be updated as well as our rack switches. Over the last few years we have greatly increased our network capacities as more and more users have needs to utilize more bandwidth then ever before.

These upgrades will allow us to even better utilize that additional bandwidth and allow us to offer gigabit connection speeds to all of our client. Next year in 2013 we are going to be offering some new exciting bandwidth packages which will include more bandwidth then we ever offered before at our best bandwidth pricing levels yet.

During this scheduled down time a few of our PDU's (Power Distribution Units) may be replaced as well. We have the new units standing by, so if we are able to swap them out at the same time, thus reducing the need for additional maintenance windows in the future, we will.

Times: We will be performing the maintenance on 4 different nights, for about 5.5 hours per night. Servers WILL NOT be down every night. The router upgrade will affect all servers, but only for a few minutes.

After that we will be going through the racks replacing the network gear one row of servers at a time. So each server will only fall into the maintenance window on one night. We cannot guarantee which night your server will be affected. The majority of the work will be done on Friday and Saturday nights. Most servers will be down for less then an hour, we will try to keep downtime to under 15 - 20 minutes if possible. We cannot guarantee which time your server will be down within the maintenance window.
Come spend some time at our place...
