BlogPatrol server and database maintenance

February 17, 2009
1:00 PM
EST (UTC-5 America/New York) - BlogPatrol.com will be offline for a few hours while we install a new ad server for the website.
3:24 PM EST - The ad server installation is complete.
4:40 PM EST - We also need to conduct maintenance on our database. BlogPatrol.com is offline and is not tracking stats during this time. We will post an update once we are back online.
11:00 PM EST - It took a long time to purge the stats this evening, but BlogPatrol.com is back online.

February 19, 2009
9:33 PM EST (UTC-5 America/New York) - Working on a different issue: The timezones are not rendering the correct times. BlogPatrol.com will be offline while we fix this problem.

February 20, 2009
2:00 AM EST (UTC-5 America/New York) - Fixed the bug that was causing the timezones to display incorrectly. Several other issues still need to be fixed: the data sets for the previous weeks are not displaying properly.

7:12 PM EST - Working again on the issue all throughout today. Making little improvements, but there's still some problems with the display of the stats. There will be another blackout period while we do some more repairs on the database.

9:53 PM EST- I've finished additional purges and repairs on the database, but I'm not at an impasse with fixing the other bugs. The site is back online, however, until I can get some help from my contractor.

Ever since the latest update my stats are showing the wrong time period. Right now it is showing stats for Friday 2/20/09 at 12:50am...but it's actually Thursday 2/19/09 and it's currently 7:50pm. My stats used to show for the correct time, EST. (UTC-America/New York)
