Server Maintenance Scheduled

Our ISP has informed us that they will be performing some maintenance activities that are intended to further protect the servers from the Meltdown and Spectre security vulnerabilities.

The server software will be modified and then the server will be rebooted.

The scheduled maintenance window is:
11 PM on Friday 16 August 2019 to 7 AM on Saturday 17 August 2019

Note that eValid Commerical License users should experience no actual interruptions of service; we are informed by our ISP that the "down time" (if any at all) will be measured in seconds -- however long it takes the server to reboot.

Regular users of the Software Research websites should experience no problems other than slight delays in serving pages.

Server Modification Scheduled

We have scheduled a server modification for the time window shown below:
Saturday, 11 May 2019, 9 PM to 10 PM Eastern Standard Time

The ISP managers assure us the modification to the new hardware for our website "...will be executed in a manner that takes advantage of our network's redundancy and resiliency in order to ensure minimal impact on your services..."

The new machine has expanded CPU capacity and is expected to have higher reliability.

Note that eValid Commercial License users should experience no actual interruptions of service; we are informed by our ISP that the "down time" will be less than 15 minutes.

Regular users of the company websites should experience no problems other than slight delays in serving pages.

We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
