I'm posting this up from the hosting company, as this network maintenance will effect us.
This is a service announcement for all customers on the Maidenhead Data Centre
 Date: 01/09/2012 and 02/09/2012 Time: 48hr Window   What: Maintenance to the network switches which connect each rack of servers to our network. Outages of 30 minutes or less are expected but there will be an higher than normal risk of additional downtime during the scheduled work due to the significant changes involved.   Why: To increase network capacity and throughput to all servers for future customer demand. We are also migrating away from Cisco to Juniper hardware in order to limit all network equipment to a single manufacturer, allowing the use of the Juniper Junos operating system.   When: Saturday 1st September 2012 starting at 9:00 to 14:00 Sunday 2nd September 2012 starting at 12:00 to 16:00

As with any work of this type, things can go wrong, and with computers/networks, they usually do. So please don't be too worried about any error or not found messages you may get, over the next few days  ;D
