Default DOWNTIME for TF for about 10 min - July 18th

A notice from the TF provider

Late July 18, 2004, Our engineering will begin upgrading the IOS code on all of our switches. These upgrades are necessary to correct an issue in the existing code that they are running. Engineers will upgrade one switch at a time, making sure that the current one returns to normal service before moving on to the next one. The total time for each switch to be upgraded and reloaded will be about 10 minutes (barring any unforeseen issues). During the reload, your server will be unavailable. The new code has been running on production switches for several weeks without issue, so we don't anticipate any problems with the upgrade.

We want to stress that while the maintenance window is 3 hours total, the anticipated downtime for any single server is only about 10 minutes. Because we are staggering the reloads, it will take a couple of hours to complete all of the switches.
