A bit of UHub downtime at 2 p.m.

We're getting a new database and that'll require shutting the site down, currently scheduled for 2 p.m. Shouldn't take too long (maybe 15 minutes, he said, optimistically), but plan accordingly - and don't do anything truly newsworthy then, OK?

For the nerds: The host is upgrading from MySQL 5.1 to MySQL 5.6, because they've had enough with supporting increasingly antiquated versions.

Cutover on a Friday afternoon?

Bold move, Cotton, let's see how it pays off.

Does your hosting provider's team hate having weekends without work to do?

They asked me what time. I stupidly said "oh, how about like 2 on Friday?" Because that's the sort of devil-may-care kinda guy I am. So, yeah.

Anyway, it's now after 2:30 and, as far as I can tell, no update has happened, so now to check what's going on ...

I upgraded 5.something to 5.6 (albeit not all in one chunk) on a bunch of servers over the past few years.

They were all painless ones. I'm sure you'll be fine.
