    Exclamation Scheduled Downtime for about One Hour on Sunday, October 5th, at 8 P.M. P.T.

    I just got this notice from our host, DreamHost. This upgrade is probably in response to the "Shellshock" bug. Expect about an hour's worth of downtime on Sunday for the non-forum parts of the Digital Press Web site. The forum itself will continue to work without interruption as it is hosted elsewhere.

    What this upgrade means for you:

    The upgrade to Ubuntu will provide a more secure core operating system, and security upgrades to software like PHP and Python. For more information, read our status post here.
