I received an e-mail from our hosts stating that...
"[They] will be performing server maintenance on Thursday, August 11th at 12PM Eastern Time. The expected downtime is approximately 15 minutes."
If all goes according to plan, the MUSH should be back up and running automatically.
Unfortunately, there is a slight chance that any work done (rooms built, descriptions added or changed, new characters created, etc.) may not be saved before the shutdown. It shouldn't be a problem, but please try to be mindful and finish your business before 12 PM Eastern.
