Starting at 7 PM eastern time tonight we'll be doing work on our servers. The site should remain available as always. But you may experience difficulty signing in to the site between 7 PM and 9 PM. The Hive will be offline during that period.
Update - 11:21: We are continuing server work late into the evening. So you may still have difficulty signing into the site late into this evening. The Hive remains offline but will return overnight.
Update: 12:25 AM: Work complete. Sign in should now work as normal; comments are visible to all readers; and The Hive is back on line. Please report any problems here.
