I is a real pain to have to have downtime, particularly unscheduled downtime.
I was down for about 4 hours when I got switched over.
BTW, I think if dreamhost only did PS transfers over the weekend, the waits for PS would be 5-20 times as long because that's less opportunity for the transfer team plus I'm sure they have less people working weekend shifts than weekday shifts.
Actually, there are people whose sites are only active on the weekends so it might not work out to do all transfers over the weekend.
On a brighter note, I'm sure once the transfer fee goes to $100 we'll be able to schedule the transfers for a particular time.
