Brief scheduled maintenance on Saturday, October 13 (completed)
The “farnsworth” and “lrrr” Web hosting servers will be restarted at approximately 11:00 PM Pacific time on Saturday October 13, and customer Web sites on those two servers will be unavailable for approximately five minutes. (See “Which server is my account on?” if you aren’t sure.) E-mail service, and customers on all other Web servers, will not be affected at all.
The restart is necessary so we can increase the memory (RAM) on those two servers to 4 GB, as we described here. After this, all our hosting servers will have 4 GB of memory.
By comparison with many other reasonably priced hosting companies, we keep the load on our servers pretty low to start with, so 4 GB is “overkill” probably 99.99% of the time — but we want to cover the other .01%. (Our unofficial motto should probably be something like “Tiger Technologies: We’re paranoid so you don’t have to be.”)
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Update: Note that the maintenance time has been changed from 10:00 PM to 11:00 PM.
