Network Maintenance (May 14, 2017 - 05:00 UTC)

Our hosting facility (Phyber) is performing maintenance in order to upgrade their networking equipment.  This may result in some services being unavailable for the next few hours as hardware is forklifted.

Affected services may include:
  • email and mailing lists
  • email and mailing lists
  • some websites
  • from some locations

Thanks to Babs Veloso (@babsveloso) for her hard work on creating a fresh new look for the websites!  It's live now!
