Hey all, news from Dave:
FYI, I’m currently resizing the root disk on wakaba to take advantage of a disk upgrade [$VENDOR] gave me a while ago, I’m also running a migration into one of their new SSD based instances, so there may be some downtime (though pretty minimal) but the rewards are pretty well worth it, double the (much faster) disk and double the RAM.
Hosting porn, if you want to give the Forums a reason for the downtime. I also took the opportunity to upgrade to the latest Ubuntu LTS.
dlawson@wakaba:~$ cat /etc/lsb-release
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 14.04 LTS"
dlawson@wakaba:~$ df -h

Note that this migration is internal and doesn't involve changes to DNS, unlike the big one, so it should be largely seamless.
