HMMM wierd, when I first looked it said the first post was around 3pm, as I have my Forum profile set to Australian time I only assumed it was 3pm my time. Just checked now and it says 7.54am Aust Time. I apologise. Still 12 hours is still not enough notice for a "Scheduled" downtime as I had been at work since 8am, then came home, cook dinner etc etc. Just to come on at 8pm to find it down on one of my only nights off during the week. Isn't there a calender on this site... hey there's an Idea - Put all scheduled maintenance there! Even if it doesn't happen at least we will be prepared.
Anyway, it's just frustrating that Cryptic seem to pick all my free times to do Maintenance.
