I think it takes an admin to understand the seriousness of certain situations, and that difficult choices need to be made.

And I won't complain about free...
I waited a bit longer and got double my money back! What a country!

I know from my IT days that computer systems have outages. The scheduled outages are always better than the unscheduled ones.

It sounds like this is planned or scheduled maintenance rather than scheduled outage.
Still waiting for my could-be-an-outage credit!

Critical stuff gets done all the time. Most users are uninformed about tech details and have no idea the vast majority of upgrades get done. A warning is just that, and not a call to dissension.
Interestingly enough a few hours ago they e-mailed to call off the fire drill "for an indefinite period..."

It's always the wee hours of the morning somewhere!

Most places I passed through paid some attention to maintenance. One problem is that if you shy away from maintenance the risk just piles up.

But I'm sure the cloud server folks give some leeway. But eventually ya just gotta patch that thing, "If you want to continue in our data center."

OK, now I'm thinking this is Cloudflare and not the primary web host. Last I checked, Cloudflare had issues they were working on resolving, and they're more international than this forum so the time of day they set is a no-win for them.
