Hi all,

There will be a period of downtime on Friday for a planned hardware
upgrade. All SUCS services will be unavailable for around 30 minutes
around 2pm. Updates will be posted to Outpost (see below) and on Twitter
(follow @sucsexec).

During this downtime, gateway and backup will replaced and one of the
spare cards from gateway will be transferred to Silver as a permanent
replacement for the failed on board NIC

The current backup machine will be taken offline around 9am on Friday,
with the new machine being brought into service during the afternoon

Outpost is our alternative Milliways instance, and may be accessed by
opening an ssh connection to outpost.sucs.org, using the username bbs,
password bbs. You will then be able to login to Milliways using your
*Milliways* username and password. The password you have set for
Milliways may not be the same as your login password - if you're not
certain then login to Milliways on silver and ask for help.

I apologies in advance for the inconvenience, particularly in light of
the recent spate of unplanned downtimes.
