ADMIN: Maintenance Downtime: 2018-01-13 10:00 PM (2 hours)

Linode will be updating our server for the Meltdown & Spectre vulnerabilities on January 13th starting at 10pm (ET, I assume). The maintenance window is two hours, although they hope to have systems back up in much less time that that. They will reboot the server when done which should bring everything back up (except CauldronMUX, of course as I have to manually restart its security server). Note our Discord server is a separate machine and will not be affected by this downtime. Sorry for the short notice.
