All services to be offline Thursday, September 6

Post by Steve Sokolowski » Fri Aug 24, 2018 8:55 pm

Hi!

I wanted to announce that all services will be offline on Thursday, September 6. The time of day during which the outage will occur is unknown, but it will take about an hour. After the full outage, there will then be partial outages when some other components like the website are offline but mining continues as normal.

The purpose of the outage is to patch the Spectre vulnerability on all the hypervisors. Chris will be traveling to Philly personally to perform the patches. At the same time, he will also install another half terabyte of memory, to allow for the hosting of Monero and its forks for when Monero mining becomes available later in the year.

Thanks for your patience during this upgrade, which is important to prevent malicious coin daemons from stealing private keys from other coins.

Thanks,

-Steve

Thank you! as you know I am keen to get CN coin capability up, though I don't know the technical differences between CN and CN7 etc from a pool owner's perspective!
