It might be a tough time of the year, but our increased traffic and growing requests on the database make it necessary:
On Tuesday, the 18th of December 2007 we will lock the database behind Tradebit for approximately 1.5 hours to upgrade the MySQL cluster in the back.
In that time nobody will be able to register new products nor be able to change any data. The database will be READ ONLY.
However, we will record sales and deliver products in that time frame. It could be, that everything will be very slow and we decided to do that around 2 am - 3 am Houston local time. That would be 4-5 am EST.
Thanks for your understanding.
