Default Probable site downtime in the next 72 hours

Bluehost wrote: Dear Valued Customer:
In the next 72 hours we will be upgrading the server thelifestream.net is hosted on from CentOS 4.7 to 5.3. We expect for the upgrade to take approximately 1.5 - 2 hours to complete. Most users will not be impacted by this upgrade, however several key items will be updated:
Just so you know.

I'm so glad that they've decided to warn us this one time.

Hopefully this sorts all the other downtimes we've been having? Though I won't count on it.

Don't, .

I'm pretty sure the database errors are due to a backup routine that hogs all the available database connections for an X amount of time. If they actually knew what they were doing, they'd have each database stored twice, once on the live server, and once redundantly. The second one would only be fed data if the primary server could be arsed (in terms of connections and cpu stuffs), so no users would notice it (through database errors).

btw, has someone found out yet whether this is a regular event? I'll go and contact Bluehost tomorrow about this thing, see if they'll send me n00dz of their barely legal and hawt daughters in compensation.

It seems to happen fairly frequently at around midnight Eastern time, but I wouldn't say it's really all that regular because it happens a lot at other times of day as well.

What if they gave us a warning now, and nothing really happened?

Hopefully this sorts all the other downtimes we've been having? Though I won't count on it.

I survived TLS and all I got was this "I got banned by Mako" shirt database errors.

You must have a lot going on your mind, I suppose.
Yeah, but I'd rather have nothing for a change. How do you do it?
Well, it comes with practice. I can think of nothing.
I do not feel the need to occupy my mind with nonsense, just to avoid thinking about what really matters.
