Short maintenance downtime window coming up
My “Alien Pastures” blog will be down for two or three hours on Thursday, 27 July 2017, starting around 1700 UTC.
The blog runs on a server in the Teklinks datacenter, and that will be replaced by new hardware. Since this involves driving to the datacenter and doing physical work (thanks Robby Workman!) the slightly longer-than-usual downtime is needed.
Additionally, the following services that are running on the same hardware, will also be down:
The http, ftp, and git services of SlackBuilds.org will not be affected, as those are hosted on a different machine.
