Hello all,

I will soon be upgrading the operating system software in core routers at our data center. The 4 hour maintenance window will start Friday 8/15/08 at 11:00pm and complete no later than Saturday 8/16/08 at 3:00am. During this time, I will be upgrading the software which will cause brief service interruptions. Once the software is upgraded, I will perform failover testing between our primary and backup internet connections which may also result in brief periods of service interruption. Sploofus will use redundant routers to minimize service interruptions during this maintenance window.

I appreciate your patience as we expand our capabilities to meet the growing needs of our community.

Thank you Justin. That is personally welcome news for me, since my "Alvandy Salutes Brett Favre" word puzzle will be scheduled during the maintence window you mentioned.

So folks, you will have at least four hours less time to do that word puzzle [if you choose] , so plan accordingly.
I know how popular and in demand the football based theme puzzles are, but Justin has intervened with his astute timing.

Let's see, less players means less brickbats!

Yeah, thanks again Justin.

You've got to play to win. Good luck.
I'm going to look for my helmet and athletic supporter awhile.

Thanks, Justin, for the notification! Now we won't all be at a loss if there are any problems, and thanks again!

And thanks AL for your heads up that your WP is about football - I had no idea who that guy was!

Thanks for letting us know - much appreciated

Will the tournaments timer be worked on during this? I posted a support ticket about the 50's which was said to end at 1 pm est time today (aug 15) after I went to finish my last couple of puzzles to complete it at about 7:15 am est this morning to find it had already been "put to bed" - really frustrating as I had a 100% -

Justin --- do you think that is the reason I got no credit for the Farve puzzle last night? Got it in 24 moves (pretty darn good) but it didn't come up on the board on in my rankings????? Any thoughts?

Sometimes, Beth, if mine don't register, I click the reload button at the top left of the screen between the back and forward, and that will bring it up.

That happens sometime to me also, Marilyn. However, not this time (sigh). It appears I never took it, didn't get any credit for it, and crashed on my monthly overall ranking.

Sorry Brett Farve!

I lost my word puzzle today when the servers went down. I had just finished it, and got the dreaded "low memory" message. I asked for a re-set, but I was not able to get back to the computer in time to do it over. Oh well..............

Sorry to hear about your glitch, Zeedee:

I feel sympathy for any Pennsylvania sploofer denied the thrill of victory.

I'm being provincial, I guess.

Was today's outage a maintenance fix?

Me, too, ZeeDee. I've been pouting all morning. It's so much extra-annoying when you've completed the WP than if you're bumped midway through the first puzzle.

Did anyone else get an extra TQOTD?

When I logged on today, I found 2 TQOTD, both with the same expiration date.
Thanks Justin, you're the BEST!!

Justin- I'll gladly pay you one peppermint pattie for an extra TQOTD also.

No bribe intended.

Hey! I want an extra question, too. That would help make up for the frustration of these outages.

What's the scoop? Enquiring minds want to know!
