The only effect is that no new sessions will be put in the render-queue until Sunday 7th in the evening (UTC). Sessions already in the queue will continue to progress.

The site may be a bit slower than usual as the database is busy preparing the next Payday run - a credit adjustment algorithm that we've been using recently to even out some of the unfairness of the CreditNew algorithm.

On a semi-related note: A failed hard-drive that was replaced last month was acknowledged under warranty (the infamous ST3000DM001 case is still rolling too) and the replacement has arrived. We're back on all drives + 1 spare.
