PSA: we’ll be performing scheduled maintenance on the site tomorrow

Hi guys! I'm interrupting the scheduled programming to let you guys know that we're setting up a site upgrade tomorrow, November 25, at around 11:00 Central Time. We expect site downtime from one to two hours, so don't freak out if you can't reach us around that time.

When it's back, should everything go according to plan, we'll have SSL support across the whole site. If anyone's wondering, user logins, forums, and subscriptions have already been secured for a while now. Wish us luck!

      IT DID, BUT UNFORTUNATELY YOU’RE STILL AROUND.

      Can’t believe it has been a decade since Portal 1.

        Dear ludi,
        We knew you were going to say that milliseconds before it appeared. We decrypted it right after you hit reply.
        Love, the NSA

          Interestingly, ludi’s Tinder page explicitly says he’s ‘looking for some NSA lovin’

    Oh, now I guess I can go cut my grass then. Or go shopping. 🙂

    When I saw ‘PSA’ the thing that came to my mind was PSA Peugeot Citroen. Hah.

      • EndlessWaves

      They dropped the Peugeot Citroen part of the name last year, and of course this year they’ve bought GM’s European operations (i.e. Opel).

      Although it’s a shame Saab didn’t last another ten years, if they’d be looking for a buyer in 2017 I bet PSA would have snapped them up.

    I hope you guys meant TLS not actually SSL…

      • morphine
      • 2 years ago

      https 😛

      • DancinJack
      • 2 years ago

      FWIW, yes, their https implementation is TLS 1.2. Unless you live in 2001 I can’t imagine anyone doing anything less.

      edit: spelling

    Support SSK instead.

    SSL across the whole site will be sweet– thanks guys!

    SSL? The downtime is worth it, looking forward to it.

    Finally taking that cheese out of the ventilation system, eh? It was funny at first…

    • thedosbox

    Could it be? Dare I hope? New feature to filter out posts featuring LED’s?

    Please?

      • Wirko
      • 2 years ago

      If posts (and ads too!!) featuring LEDs somehow get replaced by black squares, the website would look like … well, a DOS box.

      So you want to be left without hardware news, is that it?

        • cpucrust
        • 2 years ago

        There is still plenty of tempered glass hardware news to be consumed even with the LED filter in place.

        SOMEONE. NEEDS. TO. TAKE. A. STAND!

      You restrain yourself to only hourly? I commend your restraint!

      This is fine. Everything is fine.

      Ah, so that’s what PSA means. Plan to Scare the Addicts!

      I guess you’ll have to pickup other hobbies in that time.

    • DancinJack
    • 2 years ago

    Yessssssssssssss. I know from experience this has taken A TON of work. Props Bruno.

    • chuckula

    May the SSL be with you!

      • mcarson09
      • 2 years ago

      Indeed.

      • dpaus
      • 2 years ago

      And may SSK be with you! I think he’d like your ‘Murican Thanksgiving 🙂
