On Monday, October 30, 2006 at 12:00 PM Eastern Standard Time, Vicky and I will be performing scheduled backend maintenance on the core files that serve up GOTMEAD.COM

[size=12pt]This maintenance is designed to mitigate current issues including slow site load times, slow page load times, and the rotation interval of the banner ads that draw revenue to support the forums. We've been monitoring the site load times as well as the times to open pages and generally browse the forums closely, and we find it is necessary at this point to take steps to increase performance and improve the browsing experience.

Our scheduled downtime will last from 12:00 PM EST to 4:00 PM EST and may run longer depending on several factors involved in the maintenance. During that time GOTMEAD.COM will be UNAVAILABLE. Please be sure to logout of the site (please do not just disconnect as that leaves disconnections that must be cleared before we can down the database) using the LOGOUT button in the left hand margin, or the LOGOUT link at the top of the forums. Please be sure to LOGOUT of the site by 11:45 AM Eastern Standard Time as we will be shutting down site access, and forcing logouts at that time.

This maintenance is a necessary part of the planned design changes going forward to leverage GOTMEAD.COM for future growth, performance and stability. We regret the service interruption and inconvenience, and will perform the maintenance in the safest and swiftest manner possible.

Thank you in advance for your patience, cooperation and understanding.

Please address any questions or concerns to Vicky or myself.

GOTMEAD MAINTENANCE UPDATE 10/30/2006 7:45 PM PST

Well as you can see there are some issues that we are working through. Please be patient, we know what the issues are, and are working pretty much around the clock to resolve them.

We'll have the site back up and wrappered as soon as we can resolve the outstanding issues at hand. Meanwhile the forums and the main site are in separate containers. Yes, we know about the board links in the forums not resolving. If you click the most recent posts, and then use the previous/next links at the top right of each of the board topics you can go from topic to topic within the boards.

Like I said, we know what the issues are and we're working to resolve them.

adTHANKSvance for your patience and cooperation,

Oskaar
