    Scheduled Maintenance

    We sometimes have to shut Absolute Write's forums off to perform maintenance.

    When I know in advance, I'll post an announcement here. I don't always know; sometimes things go wrong.

    If the forums are off and you visit them, you'll see a statement at the very top of the page announcing that there off.

    Here are some places to get information:

    Twitter

    AW Admin's twitter feed


    MacAllister's twitter feed

    Facebook

    Absolute Write Page

    If the forums are off, or the entire site is "down" please don't check back every ten minutes.

    Give me at least an hour to suss out the problem and try to fix it. It's much harder to do that if people are refreshing the page.

    Thanks

    Nice one Poet. I suppose I should have posted a note that "The board's back up" here, but since I noticed EIGHT members were still clicking Refresh, I figured they'd get the idea sooner or later . . .

    Just bumping this to remind folks:

    Tonight's the night!

    Shell scripts!

    Cron jobs!

    And the board and Web site will be off for about an hour from 11pm Seattle/Los Angeles time tonight.

    Oh no!
    I do that too, but my site doesn't have traffic like this. This place is like a city, mine is like a parish.
    I only plan to do maintenance every 2 weeks. And I always forget. Tsk, tsk.

    Yes, folks, it's that wonderful fun night every week where we try to stay up late enough to err . . . groom the board.

    In 40 minutes, at 11pm Seattle time, everybody get out of the pool; we'll shut the board down for about an hour.

    Tonight's beer is Full Sail Brewery's Session Black; it's pretty fine.

    Happy maintenance!

    Can I be mortified even though I missed this?

    I need an excuse for the bad behavior I'm going to display soon.

    Quit bumping the thread. It's Tuesday and I'm expecting the shutdown to go tonight.
    I still poop rainbows.

    I won't steal any of your ideas. I have enough of my own I'm not using.

    Why am I often left scratching my head when I'm on this forum? It must be funny to watch my face alternating from a frown to deer-in-the-headlights to total bewilderment and back again.

    Yep; tonight's the night. We'll be shutting down the board for about an hour; might be a little longer this time, at 11pm Seattle/Pacific time.

    This routine, and we'll be back ASAP. Please don't keep refreshing. Just go write for an hour, or think about what beer I should write about next, or drink a cold one for me, since, alas,
