There’s going to be a bit of downtime tonight and tomorrow for maintenance. First off, this Friday, February 8, starting at 22:00 PST (06:00 GMT February 9th) there will be some downtime while the main server cluster AB is hosted on is moved from one data center to a different one. This outage is expected to last up to 8 hours, and will hopefully be finished by 06:00 PST (14:00 GMT) on February 9th. This outage will effect most blogs on AnimeBlogger.net and will also affect the Forums and Antenna.
Secondly, one of our dedicated servers will be down for some electrical maintenance, the transformer that supplies power to the hosting company has to be taken offline for 3 to 5 hours to repair a “high voltage elbow“. This is semi-emergency maintenance, there was a fire in a nearby building recently, and upon inspecting all the transformers in the area the electric company found several needing repairs. Work is scheduled to begin around 08:00 CST (13:00 GMT) and will take anywhere from 3 to 5 hours, hopefully more towards the lower end. This outage will affect the blogs on that dedicated server (which are most of the bigger blogs besides Random Curiosity), the main site and my blog.
We apologize for the inconvenience!
