System Down Time Notification
FurEauction is having some minor issue that has been effecting the web
site performance and stability. We are hoping to take down the machine
that runs FurEauction down September 16, 2002. If we are allowed to
make the change Monday morning we are hoping this will be minor down time
in about 30 minutes and we expect the site will have no further down time
Unlike sites and services that are run out of garages and/or bedrooms,
we run our site at an isp. While we gain many benefits; like 24/7
monitoring, full ups, and a fast connection to the internet's backbone,
we have to schedule any maintenance with the ISP during normal business
hours otherwise we are charged extra money. These business hours do
coincide with our working hours, so we may not be able to make the
change Monday as we plan.
Even if the change can not be made Monday morning there is expected
to be no serious problems with the hardware at this moment.
We ask that all buyers respect any seller that has been affected by
this if the seller chooses to back out of an auction based on site
For more information about this and any future downtime please feel
free to check out http://www.fureauction.com/update_list.php.
Well that's it, we hope that you will continue to use the service.
Please feel free to contact FurEauction for any questions or answers.
