Hypatia's report management system will be offline for the day of 4/15/2013 until 4:30pm PST. This will effect uploading and deleting reports, as well as restoring reports from the archive. During this period, new user registration will also be disabled. I will post here once this downtime is complete.
Why the downtime? Hypatia is moving! We have reached a stage where the current infrastructure is incapable of sustaining the load of everything that we want to do with the site. Luckily, thanks to our incredible community, we are now capable of moving to a much more robust server infrastructure, which we are doing today.
What does this mean for the site? It's about to get faster. We're going to be able to enhance your storage. And...we're about to unveil a large number of brand-new features to the site, which we haven't been able to release on our older hardware.
Stay tuned, great things are happening!
Update 4:41pm PST:
This downtime will last until 8:30pm. Thanks for bearing with us, folks, we're almost done!
Update 7:08pm PST:
This downtime is now complete. Report uploading and user registration are now re-enabled. Deletion of reports and restoring reports from the archive will become available over the next day, as we finish upgrading our archive system.
Welcome to the new server!
