Thu Feb 24 17:41:57 PST 2000 — We will be upgrading our core Cisco router to a new version of it’s operating system tonight between midnight and 1am. We expect downtime of about three minutes while it reloads, and during this time, Internet access will not be available. The new OS version allows us to do additional load balancing to enhance performance, and also resolves a few bugs.
We will also be replacing the power supply in news.sonic.net tonight. We expect this system will be offline for about 15 minutes while we put in the new power supply and reboot. -Dane and Scott
