Downtime this evening... Site News
We'll be upgrading our server tonight (to hopefully end the occasional overnight crash caused by some of the cron tasks on the forum site). The server will be offline starting tonight around 8pm Eastern time, and we'll hopefully be back online in an hour or so...

As an aside, it's nice to be home again, and back at the hints!

Rob, good luck with the upgrade. I hope all will go smoothly and will finally stop making the sever crash once in a while.

Hey Rob. I've already emailed you today, but this says different things than the email. I just hope that the server ends up all right. That is all.

Welcome back Rob! Will this be 8p EDT, CDT, or PDT?

No offense to MDT people, but I don't think the servers are there. :-)

Whoops, sorry -- 8pm Eastern. I've added that to the hint, too...

The Fixed Time World Clock is a nice timezone conversion service to use with downtime notifications.

Please restart DNS!

Since the IP of www.MacOSXHints.com has changed but the serial remain the same as the old one, 31, the DNS's of all ISP's won't update! Admin, please restart DNS!

Restart won't help! The serial of the zone files must be changed to a higher number to make sure that the other dns servers update.

Hey Rob, good job on The Screen Savers. You should try to talk them into doing a weekly Mac segment with you (if you live close). My favorite part is thinking about all those PC users turning green with envy as you are zooming around in OS X :D
