Notice of Scheduled Downtime
Posted by Henrik on 24 September 2003, 12:52 GMT

On 4 October 2003 through 5 October 2003, ticalc.org will be unavailable due to a major scheduled hardware and software upgrade. The downtime will be a few hours to a full day.

Services will be restored incrementally and mailing lists will be unaffected.

Further information about the upgrade will be available after it has been done for those interested.

So...will there be any changes to the interface of the site, or will it all be behind-the-scenes?

I'm not the webmaster, but my guess is that it will be behind-the-scenes, like most of ticalc.org's previous upgrades. Otherwise, it would probably be made clear.

Anyone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, of course. :-)

I assume by "anyone" you mean someone on the staff. I'm curious, what other "Behind-the-scene" upgrades have been taking place?

"due to a major scheduled hardware and software upgrade" generally doesn't mean "due to a major overhaul of the outward appearance of the site", so I'm guessing it'll all be behind the scenes...

OMG! No more Ti on ticalc.org?!?!?

Has anyone else noticed that the "Search" utility seems to be nonfunctional? Even searching for "ti" yielded no results! I seriously doubt that no one has ever used the word Ti on this site. Maybe this downtime will fix the problem.

I don't think it is your browser. You are probally just searching for more important things than "how many times does 'TI' appear?"

Ha, ha. Thanks for the mirth. I never thought of ticalc.org as The Ring, I reserve that for my v200. I tend think of ticalc.org as "heaven" or "nirvana".
