The forums will be offline for much of Sat, November 3rd.

Not sure exactly what time in the morning, but I'd estimate down time to be 5 hours or so.

The forums are moving to new servers, so hopefully performance will improve with this move. There will likely be some glitches right after the move, but hopefully it'll be fixed up through the weekend.

Shower and sunlight, two things that'll probably make people burst into flames or melt.

I'll be cowering in the corner banging my head against the wall. Will someone come get me when the upgrade is over?

Without MacRumors, I took some time off from the Internet. I did errands, had a picnic in the park, rode my bike, and played some basketball. :cool:

OK, not really. But I did walk around the block once.

OK, not really. I went next door to talk to a neighbor, then came right back.

OK, not really. I walked into another room in the house, away from my Mac.

OK, not really. I just scooted my chair away from my desk a little. Then I drummed my fingers on the arm of the chair until MacRumors was back. :eek:

I spent a minute or so trying to figure out why they'd be a link to mycarcheck.com on the maintenance notice page. :confused:
