According to an e-mail I just received…
[quote]Friday January 10, 2003 there will be a maintinace window from Midnight
until 5 am PST. During this time, some of DreamHost’s central database
servers will be taken down for a few hours. Services affected will be
panel.dreamhost.com, and user and domain updates such as password changes.
Mail, Http, Ftp, and Ssh services will not be affected.

My biggest beef with this? That e-mail was sent late last night, providing no warning whatsoever.
Additionally, mail and FTP are both being affected, despite what the e-mail claims. Plus, the admin panel is still screwy.(Examples: Support history is not being displayed properly, Goodies > Streaming returns a load of errors and Status > System Status displays “System uptime stats currently offline (how ironic!).”)

An error has occurred in the program
…due to a permissions problem. Since FTP isn’t working, I can’t upload a file with that call commented out, and telnetting in and editing the file does me no good since I can’t save it!
Oh yeah, and I suppose my Mojo Mail upgrade will have to remain incomplete and unfixable until somebody gets on the ball.
It looks like they’re performing maintenance about as accurately as they can spell it.
