Hi folks,

Apologies for the massive cross-posting.

Our CVS, mailing list and web servers are located in a Cambridge, MA USA 
datacenter belonging to Wyeth Resarch. Genetics Institute (which became 
part of Wyeth) has supported our signficant internet bandwidth and 
hosting needs for many years since the earliest versions of our open 
source efforts. Since I have to do this massive cross-post anyway I 
figured it was a good time to thank them again in public.

The real reason for this message is to announce a 1-day period of 
significant server downtime. The office floor & datacenter in the 
building where our servers are hosted is going to have a planned 
electrical shutdown (including emergency and backup power circuits) from 
10am - 6pm on Saturday November 22nd. I'll be manually bringing down our 
servers sometime before the 10am deadline.

The time estimate is conservative. In the event that the facilty work 
takes less time than expected I'll probably take advantage of the window 
to perform some server upgrades and failed disk replacements.

For any questions/concerns or if you notice a server or service that is 
still not available after the 22nd please contact me directly at 
'chris at bioteam.net' or 1-617-877-5498.
