At 11:00pm pacific time tonight, fremont (the server) will be down for approximately 41 minutes to perform a server upgrade.
Full service should be restored and available no later than midnight.
This outage will affect all sites hosted, including:
This outage will not affect email.
If this planned outage will cause you any problems, please let me know ASAP so we can either mitigate the issue or replan the outage.

I’ve updated the blogs to WordPress 3.9 “Smith” ((http://wordpress.org/news/2014/04/smith/)).
The main push of this version is to “close the gap between editing and publishing”:
Improved visual editing
The updated visual editor has improved speed, accessibility, and mobile support. You can paste into the visual editor from your word processor without wasting time to clean up messy styling. (Yeah, we’re talking about you, Microsoft Word.)
Edit images easily
With quicker access to crop and rotation tools, it’s now much easier to edit your images while editing posts. You can also scale images directly in the editor to find just the right fit.
Drag and drop your images
Uploading your images is easier than ever. Just grab them from your desktop and drop them in the editor.
