Our system administrators will be performing scheduled maintenance on Saturday, February 22nd from 2:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. (MST) Mountain Standard Time. During this schedule servers will be upgraded with additional system resources to improve their future performance and stability. Due to the circumstances of the maintenance event it will be necessary to shut down all services. The MUD will be shut down as close to 2:00am MST as possible, and rebooted as early as possible to minimize downtime.
