Scheduled Hardware Upgrade

October 10, 2009 will be offline and therefore not recording any stats during this upgrade.
11:37 AM UTC-4 (America/New York) - The BlogPatrol server will be offline later today in order to complete a hardware upgrade. The purpose of the upgrade is to replace a 15-month old 10,000 RPM, 300 GB SATA Hard Drive with a brand new 15,000 RPM, 300 GB Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) Hard Drive. The new SAS drive will help BlogPatrol to operate faster than the older SATA drive.
4:09 PM - The upgrade is presently underway. We will post an update when the activity is verified as complete and successful.
7:48 PM - The upgrade completed and successful. BlogPatrol is improved and back online.
