    We'll be going down for planned maintenance tonight 2016/3/12 at 8pm PST (2016/3/13 at 4am UTC).

    If all goes well, we'll be back up by Monday morning. During most of the "down" period we'll have a read-only version of TMC up, so you should be able to browse but not post.


    Cheers!

    Thanks for the heads up, doug!

    Will there be any visual cues while read-only mode is active, or will it look the same but spit out error messages with attempts to write?

    I'll see if I can get over my addiction. Hopefully I won't start to shiver heavily..

    But good to see you are adding IPV6 connectivity for TMC tonight! ;)

    There should be some kind of notice at the top of the page. If I do it correctly, you won't be able to post. If it turns out you can, those posts will be lost when I bring the system back up.

    Before the site us up as read only, it will be closed to browsing for about 15 minutes.

    Good luck with the upgrade Doug, hope you get as little down-time as you're aiming for and that no old data gets lost or corrupted.

    I believe there is actually quite some value to the entire content of TMC and would hate for any of it to get lost. Future generations may study us: What where the collective thoughts of those who where in the very early 0,001% of the world population in 2006 to 2016 who where interested in the things that, seen in retrospect, came to influence the world the most (in this case the advent of fully electric transport).

    Do we need to start a TMC new feature speculation thread in anticipation of Monday? :)

    Hope the downtime goes well.

    I think it's a conspiracy. TMC is going to be down and something amazing is going to happen that we're not going to be able to hear about!

    :p

    Or, use the TMC corpus as training material for our future robot overlords so they can identify psychopaths.

    Tell your *friend* that they'll stay a junior member until they figure out they can change the designation themselves, if they have enough posts (or until they've been here a long time). Totally up to them, of course, but I'd change it.

    Pretty sure you had agreed to get me a Tesla before we go IPv6. Yeah, I think I read that right.

    Are these overlords identifying me as a source for inspiration?

    Every one of us.

    Well, I guess I better bow out. Time for my productivity to skyrocket!

    Good luck, doug. And many thanks.
