Downtime 2:30am EST / 11:30pm PST

LibraryThing will go down at 2:30am EST / 11:30pm PST / 7:30 GMT for a major swap. The “big new server” I got some months ago has proved very fast, but also glitchy. My database guy thinks it was some interaction between the OS FreeBSD and MySQL. He’s made a Linux server—exact same hardward—that seems never to crash under similar stress. That sure would be swell. Everyone cross your fingers!

Oh, and don’t worry about your data. Obviously the change-over will be backed up six ways from seven.
