Today I received the following notification. “Tomorrow, on the node where your service is located, we will carry out work on the equipment’s modernization and configuration. Downtime will occur for some time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We hope for your understanding and cooperation.”
So basically, I have no idea how long the site will be down and when the maintenance will occur exactly. I am hopeful that this modernization will fix some regular issues I am having with the site. “Tomorrow” officially starts in the Netherlands at 6:00 PM EST and ends at 6:00 PM EST tomorrow. So the downtime will happen somewhere in between those times. It seems like it will be a rather lengthy process. This of course makes me anxious. But hopefully things will go well.
As a result of this, I plan to put up a RHOD Discussion thread for tonight’s show. Whether the site will be up when it airs is unclear. However, tonight’s RHOD is up against This Is Us and the season premiere of Big Sky and there is no second airing. I’m also under the weather today. I made a run to the Publix and had a pretty bad panic attack the entire time. I still haven’t put away my groceries. Because I am not moving much these days, these trips suck all the energy out of me, so I am grateful for the time off. I hope you guys with tell me what happens on RHOD tonight if the site is up.
I’ll be holding my breath until the site comes back online. I’d be lying if I said this does not make me nervous. I’ve never had a hosting site do this before. I just hope everything is backed up.
