Dearest Members and Visitors of the little Fountain Pen Nut house on the digital prairie,
A slightly late advice, but better late than never.
Today our hosting company is doing some necessary maintenance on the network.
To quote the message of our hosting company:
If you are receiving this message, you have service(s) in our US Central Region that will be undergoing maintenance to provide network upgrades. These will be taking place on November 21st and 22nd (2015) and will both begin at 1:00AM (EST) with the maintenance window extending to 7:00AM (EST) each day. Please note, we will be moving traffic from the network connection this work is being performed on and this will be executed in a manner that takes advantage of our network's redundancy/resiliency in order to ensure minimal impact on your services. No further action is required on your part.
During this maintenance window, the most you should witness are potential brief periods of increased latency and/or packet loss. Following its completion, your service should have improved redundancy and capacity.
IOW, if FPN does hiccup every so often, this is not something to be worried about, The hiccups are caused by possible loss of data in the transmission and/or a slower response from FPN than usual.
All should be fine again tomorrow late morning EST / afternoon GMT.
If you do experience a hiccup, just refresh the screen, and all should be well again.
HTH, warm regards, Wim
On behalf of the FPN Admin Team
