Internet outage next Tuesday for one hour

Hey all,

Our Internet and Internet 2 connections will be down next Tuesday at 11:30 GMT to 12:30 GMT. After the upgrade, we will have full use of the Internet 2 from my office, and that will lead to even better connectivity. It will also result in better traffic handling from my machines as well, via the McIDAS ADDE servers, and our LDM servers. Sorry for any inconvenience.
