Good evening ladies and gents,
This is to give you a heads up that on the 17th August at roughly 22.30 the BFI Server's will be taken offline for the night for upgrades and maintenance.
We anticipate that this work will take about 7 hours, maximum, but it may take longer. If you're unable to access BFI on Sunday, please don't panic, we will be back, but it'll be us doing the panicking
When we return on Sunday, you will notice nothing much different - The upgrades going on is the software used to run BFI. When we come back, we should be 'slimmer', 'sleeker' and much speedier than before but it'll all be in the background
As we run multiple servers from multiple locations, some of this work is doubled up but all of this work has to be done by BFI so unfortunately this means we do have to stop access the forum to be able to do this now and then - Rest assured, we try to keep this to an absolute minimum, and we work during the dark hours to keep the disruption to a minimum
This thread will be bumped on Saturday as a reminder, and you will get a "system notification" at about 22.15 on Saturday warning you of the impending work.
