Server core software upgrade

The core software which powers our main server is being upgraded. After the upgrade our server will run even faster and more reliably. There will be downtime depending on the total number and size of files on our server. But our service provider will work hard to keep this very brief downtime to an absolute minimum.

Scheduled start date: 2014-09-18 19:51:10 PST

UPDATE:
The upgrade is complete and server is now providing all services as usual.

The downtime on the server took much longer than we expected. We apologize for the inconvenience of this and we regret that there was nothing we could do to speed up the process once it had started.

We are requesting all future server updates to be done at more convenient times.
