Hey guys,

We’ve got to schedule a site outage for Tuesday the 8th of September from 3PM until approximately 6PM AEST

This is for our hosting company to perform a big disk upgrade which should give us increased performance. While the site is behaving itself quite well at the moment, this is more of a preventative measure, to make sure our disks are absolutely in top notch condition.

That should then let us handle the hordes of traffic visiting envato marketplaces after the redesign :-)

would you translate this to UTC time?

I have no idea what times you are talking about.

p.s. UTC = EDT + 4 hrs (Can/US)

Having quite some experience hosting web sites, I must say I am a bit surprised by the fact your host deems it called for take all sites offline for three hours to swap some hard drives… Don’t they have any fail-over system or other measures in place to work around actually having to take sites down such a long period?

It’s not really a hard drive swapover, but an underlying filesystem change that requires a full fsck which will well over a terabyte of data can take quite a while.

No, it isn’t. Normally I’d be a bit more coy about it, but I’d hate for everyone to build a bunch of expectations up and then get let down. It’ll be out soon… but not that soon
