An updated server used behind-the-scenes with VuFind 0.6 and VuFind 3.x will be put in place between 6AM and 10AM on Sunday, April 9th. The outage should be less than 20 minutes if everything works as expected. If not, we may remove the new server and put the older one back in place.

Avery Brooks, known to some as Captain Benjamin Sisko from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, is seen reading from Henry Dumas' Goodbye, Sweetwater. Dumas was involved with Southern Illinois University Edwardsville's Upward Bound program, and worked with Eugene Redmond, distinguished Emeritus Professor of English at SIUE and poet of the Black Arts Movement. Dumas died in 1968 at the age of 33, shot to death by New York City Transit Police.

This afternoon I was doing maintenance on redundant security devices. The devices are supposed to preserve network connections when one device in the pair is restarted, but I have learned that we are dropping those connections.

I am holding off on further maintenance until later tonight. I will also investigate why connections are not being preserved. I apologize for kicking you off of our servers twice this afternoon.
