A bumpy ride for a few days (maybe)

Post by Xen » Tue Jan 09, 2018 10:52 pm

The host AST is with sent this to me 8 hours ago, Wednesday Jan 9, 2018.

Long story short: expect intermittent downtime of 15 minutes at a time over the next 2 to 3 days while they fix a 'bug'.

I'm sorry about this. As soon as I can move the site, it will be moved to a better place.

[Circa -8 hrs ago]
A critical bug has been discovered within Intel CPUs which affects most hosting and IT providers including us. Rest assured, we've been working diligently to understand the impact and mitigation of this bug and we're currently applying patches to our servers and network.
While we won't go into the specifics of the bug as it has already been well reported, as a responsible hosting provider over the course of the next 48-72 hours our servers will be rebooted to apply the necessary patches. Please expect up to 15-30 minutes of downtime as each patch is applied.

Did they try turning it off and then on again...?
