In recent months, you've doubtless noticed dramatic improvements in speed on and Contacts On Tap. We've been improving our data center and our media contact products by leaps and bounds.

Friday's change is more in the nature of data protection. For the technically inclined, this maintenance window will be used specifically to replace several batteries and related components within the data center UPS (uninterruptible power supply) system; we're also migrating servers into recently installed rack enclosures.

The result, of course, will be better, even more reliable, service, but we understand that Friday's interruption poses an inconvenience.

Just think of all the speed enhancements we've brought you recently, and our downtime won't seem so long.
