Downtime notices

Once I get the new main website server up, I’m going to be moving other services to new servers as well. So expect random downtime today for various things.

Edit: I’m now done with moving all the services other than the email. I’ll post an announcement about that shortly as that move might impact email deliverability.

Edit 2: mail server is done as well. So now all the hosted services have been moved to new servers.

I need to install a bigger discourse update. I’ll start installing it in about 5 minutes. Should result in about 20-30 minutes of downtime at most.

There’s a bigger discourse update that needs installing. This will result in more downtime than other maintenance. So expect about 30-ish minutes. I’ll start updating the devforum now and once that is done the community forums.

Edit: had some issues with the discourse update randomly failing, seems like I couldn’t do anything with that except just try multiple times until it eventually worked. All should be fine now.
