My websites will all be taking a 15- to 20-minute nap sometime tonight while my kernel is upgraded. Everything will be down, including my snowflake directory and all the snowflake patterns. It will look as if I disappeared off the web! But don't panic. It's only temporary.
My web host can't say exactly when the outage will occur other than between 8 p.m. tonight and 4 a.m. tomorrow, but everything's supposed to be better, faster, more secure and up-to-date when my websites get back online.
Now, I have no idea what a server kernel is, but I'm going to be enjoying a few kernels of my own while I watch some Olympics tonight, so being without snowflake patterns for a while isn't going to have a huge impact on me. How about you?!?
