Okay, big lead time on this one. Lots of time to prepare yourself.

Blogger and Blog*Spot will be offline for approximately one hour from 7–8PM this coming Monday, February 6th. The little outage indicator will kick in Sunday night to remind you.

This time, we’re completing the long–prepared for cutover from an older, flakier piece of network equiptment to a shiny bright new one. (This is how they explain things to software guys like me.) That means fewer planned and “unplanned” outages in the future. Seriously. I wouldn’t be too surprised if the ops guys get all Office Space on the thing they’re taking out, given the trouble it’s caused.

Now get thee back to blogging.
