From Hostgator:
Hello,

Over the next few weeks, our data center we will be performing hardware upgrades on batches of dedicated servers to improve performance. Your server is part of the batch being upgraded soon, and we would like to notify you of the upcoming maintenance.

The maintenance window for this upcoming maintenance is 6 hours; however we do not anticipate more than 60 minutes of downtime for your individual server. Our data center's technicians have performed this maintenance several times before and have established a process to minimize the outage period.

During this maintenance, your server will be gracefully powered down and have additional RAM installed. Upon completion, your network connectivity and power will be restored and your IP addresses will be maintained.

Maintenance Window: 12:00am-6:00am CDT (GMT-5) on Tuesday, September 3, 2013
Expected Downtime :: 45-60 Minutes within the maintenance window

It is up for now, but to avoid these issues arising again we will need to do further changes. Downtime may be random but should be for short periods only.

Thanks so very much for all you do, Karl Erik and Mad Cow! It's not until we aren't able to log in that we realize how much ER has become a second home for many of us - so glad we're back! :D :D :D :D
