Servers will be up and down a bit this weekend in order to service a couple of aging fan ball bearings that sound like they need a bit of attention.
While the main web-server is down it will also have its stock CPU heatsink replaced with an improved version. The stock one has proven insufficient to cool the system under load.

Inspection of the fans was completed and the CPU heatsink replaced. New fans for storage were ordered and are going to be installed this weekend. Expect about half an hour of downtime later today.
