Site downtime expected

We were informed by our hosting company that they have to relocate their fiber optic cables due to construction works in Tampa Bay, FL.
The relocation is scheduled to start 10pm November 6, and end 5 am November 7, Florida time. They could be done earlier, but most likely FN will be inaccessible during these hours, either sporadically or fully.
Luckily these downtimes do not overlap with any contest submission or voting deadlines, so all chops and votes can be submitted later when the site comes back.

We are not happy about such long expected downtime, but understand it was not the hosting company's choice (they were forced to relocated their cables by the city council).
Oh, well, fingers crossed that it won't take too long...
and see you all when the site comes back.
