    Site Downtime: Today starting at 2

    Fanatics -

    Just a heads up. The site is going to be down today from at least 2-3 for maintenance. It could take a smaller amount of time, or maybe longer. Kind of a toss up. Just giving you all a heads up now. Thanks for your patience!

    Chris

    Not that it's going to hurt anything but weird that you'd do it during the day. Having to do upgrades in the middle of the night is half of being a web dev. I wish I had customers that would be ok with their site going down during the day. Most of them complain if we do anything before midnight.

    2 o'clock sounds about right. That's about the time IT guys roll out of bed after their all night World of Warcraft benders.

    And of course we will all receive 5,000,000 credits for our trouble, right Chris?

    We always do our maintenance at night. You guys never even know about it. This specific project is going to take like four guys though. Easiest to do it from 2-3.

    You seriously scheduled site downtime in the middle of the day on Opening Day? For shame.

    No point in getting upset. This is a free website for everybody to enjoy. The site needs some maintenance done so that we can make it faster and more efficient. For the first time ever, it needs to be done during the day. Not a big deal.
