Round of PF updates coming Friday

  1. Nov 23, 2015 #1
    Holidays weekends are the best time to get site updates done. Fewer people are on to catch any mistakes :biggrin:

    Friday night I'll be doing a round of updates to the forum and Insight blog. No exciting features or visual changes. Just some bug squashing and optimization fixes. There will be about 10 minutes downtime. I'll post more when the time draws closer.

    Wednesday (like the title) or Friday (like the text)?

    Looks like that concept generalizes to announcements about site updates....

    It is also harder to spot downtimes if you don't know when they will happen.

    And if they're short enough. If it turns into a four-hour Murphy's Law downtime, on the other hand...

    Darn. I thought they were done because a day or two ago I could not get PF to connect. My browser said the site was either down or experiencing extremely long delays. It only lasted for a little while after I tried the site but I assumed it was your upgrade going on. Oh, well. Another outage to look forward to on Friday.

    Forum will be closing for updates in roughly 1 hour. Expect 10-20 minutes of downtime.

    Now, usually, when you say something like that you get one of my smart-ass remarks. This time I'm not going to say anything. Nothing at all. I'm not going to say a word. I'm going to do nothing at all to cast aspersion on your optimism. I'm not even going to respond to your post.

    At all.

    Not a word.

    Sorry for the extra downtime. The update of course did not go as smoothly as I thought. There are still some issues with the style that I need to work on, but for now we are stable.

    Need to finish a few things tonight. Hopefully not more than 5-10min downtime.
