Hints site upgrade happening Friday afternoon...

Actually Rob didn't state that it would definitely take up to 5 hours, he said that for them to ensure they do it right it might take them that long.

Any CMS upgrade that involves database changes can run into issues during the upgrade. This happens no matter what system you use.

Actually having downtime sucks. Having extra downtime you didn't plan ahead for because you didn't give yourself enough time sucks a lot more.

Here's hoping it only takes an hour or less, but let's be glad they have planned out the time to work on things if something crops up.

And, as it turned out, the original estimate was very optimistic/unrealistic. But
glad to see the site back online although I fall into the "too much white" camp.
