We apologize and are really crazy about this. Then again, we understand the need for maintenance, so here’s an heads up for oTeKbits fansand readers. On Friday, March 2nd starting at 11:00AM to 1:00PM [GMT/UTC] our servers will be experiencing Maintenance. While the maintenance window is two (2) hours long, we expect your total downtime to be no more than 30 minutes.
Thank you for your understanding. I’d suggest you check out our Flickr collection of photos from tech events such as the Mobile Monday Nigeria, and BlackBerry Developers Conference Europe.
Interested in knowing why? Then you may read this note from our host:
The reason why we have to replace this rack power strip was due half of it failing on Wednesday February 29th at ~9:20AM. While this outage only affected approximately half of the servers in this rack, we would rather be proactive and replace the entire power strip rather than risk another outage that could impact the entire rack.
Presently all services are restored and functional for every server in this rack as we used a temporary replacement strip to get all affected servers back online as fast as possible. During this two hour maintenance window on March 2nd, we will be replacing the entire faulty power strip with a new one, and moving all servers to it accordingly. All best practice measures will be used to power down your server and move it to this new power strip.
