Advertlets Will Be Down for Emergency Maintenance This Saturday 9PM

Advertlets will be performing emergency maintenance this Saturday (11/10/08) from 9PM onwards to pre-emptively replace a hard disk that is on the verge of a crash. While the maintenance may take a few hours, this is a necessary step to ensure data integrity for items such as your personal details & earnings as well as to ensure that loading speed of ads is optimal in future.

Your blog will load as usual during that period, however, during the maintenance period default ads may be shown or the ads may not display. Also, during that period you may not be able to login to or access the site. We expect that maintenance will be complete by midnight to 2AM on Sunday (12/10/2008), and there should be no loss of data as we will be replacing the hard disk before it crashes, and making backups just in case. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.
