GS Downtime - local warning

Recommended Posts

On Tuesday, February 23rd starting at 8 PM Pacific Time (GMT -8), we'll be performing upgrades to the Geocaching.com database server in preparation for the increase in Geocaching over the spring and summer months.

 

The expected downtime for this work is 4 hours and during that time, all Geocaching.com services including the web site, Pocket Queries, the Geocaching iPhone application, Geocache Navigator, and other 3rd party applications that access our API, will be inaccessible.

 

We'll have a webpage set up on the Geocaching site with this downtime notice and we'll provide status updates if the downtime exceeds the 4 hour maintenance window. We'll also post updates to this forum thread as well.

 

Thanks,

How can they have a page set up on the GC site with status updates if the website itself will also be inaccessible ? <_<

They did and it was most informative. Even when they were running overtime, the website kept you informed as to the progress. Well done GC.
