The nice folks at Linode, our hosting provider, have decided to give us (as well as their other customers) some additional capacity, on each of our servers!
Our largest server will get an additional 16GB of RAM (memory) and an additional 4 CPU cores. That’s a significant update that should make the system speedier for all.
We’re keen to take advantage of this, but it will need a short period of downtime to perform the upgrade, possibly a couple of hours. We’re provisionally scheduling that for this Sunday (27th May) at midnight. If there are any issues at all with that though, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll delay until a time suitable for all.
