Site Maintenance on December 11, 2009 Ross Kimbarovsky | December 10th, 2009

On Friday (December 11), to improve the speed and stability of our site, we’ll be upgrading both the hardware and software that powers During those upgrades, our site will be offline – but we’ll update you about our progress when you visit our homepage.

We will begin the maintenance at 9:30 am CST/ 3:30 pm GMT – at that time, we will bring the site offline. The maintenance could take up to 24 hours to complete (but we will make every effort to keep it as short as possible).

We truly, truly apologize for the inconvenience but we also truly, truly hope that you’ll find the site to be much more well behaved after this update. If you have a project that will be affected by this, or if you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact us – or on Twitter: @crowdspring @rosskimbarovsky or @mike_samson – and we’ll do absolutely anything we can to help. We’ll be more than happy to extend any project affected by this outage or find other creative solutions to minimize the impact on you, so don’t hesitate to ask.

Thanks in advance for your understanding. We’ll keep you posted along the way on our homepage.
