      Possible Server Downtime 30/07/09

      We have just had this message re our hosting location, as the window is very early in the morning, it probably won't affect very many people.

      We need to deploy a software update to our customer firewall and router devices. This should be seamless, but as a precaution we’re opening a maintenance window between 05:00 and 06:00 on Thursday 30.07.09. During this period there’s an outside chance that connectivity could be affected for brief periods.

      The software update, when completed will make future upgrades/router failovers quicker.

      Thats pretty good service from your hosting company.
      Over a week notice and scheduled for a time that wont really effect most people.

      tbh Dave, they are the best server rental company we have ever used.

      Always give plenty of notice, reliability is second to none, and any work we instruct them to do, is always done same day, if not immediately. And reasonably priced as well.
