Maintenance Updates

In about an hour I’m going to take the forum down to migrate from zvols to qcow2 for significantly better write performance. This will improve the speed of the forum a little (especially while backups are being performed). In order to do this the forum must be completely down. Nothing else will be affected.

Starting at 1:00 PM EST (when this post says it was made 1 hour ago) and it will take about an hour to complete.

Updates will be posted at if there are any.


All done. Took about an hour like I estimated.


In an hour the forum will go down so I can make a few modifications. The bot and CrapTrap will be unaffected. I will post updates on Twitter if there’s anything you need to be made aware of.

I’m currently upgrading a few VMs right now which means you may not be able to authenticate to the bot for a couple of minutes, but if everything goes as expected you should not notice anything.

Rebooting now then it should be finished.
