We need to do some significant maintenance this weekend that will affect both the USA-W network server and the forum. The exact period of downtime will be dependent on several variables.
USA-W network server will stop accepting new connections on Saturday 18th around 1200Z. Existing connections will be able to continue without being affected for 24-26 hours, at which point the server will be turned off. Should anyone remain on the server at this point, I will endeavour to notify them on the network so that they have time to reconnect.
From 1200Z on Sunday 19th I will be starting the server maintenance. This will include a period of downtime that will last at least 20 minutes, though will likely last longer and may last a period of hours. I will do my best to minimize the downtime.
After this period of downtime, all services will be restored.
