UThink upgrade March 14, 7:00 AM - 9:00 AM

Update: The UThink upgrade was completed successfully. Please let us know if you encounter any issues. Go Gophers!

Once again, we are upgrading the software that runs UThink, Movable Type, to MT 4.31 this Sunday March 14. This means that UThink will be unavailable from approx. 7:00 AM through 9:00 AM. Blogs will still be available during this time, but the administration interface will be unavailable. It will also be necessary to periodically reboot the server which obviously will bring the entire system down, but the reboots will be intermittent and not time consuming.

Of course, we are very sorry for any inconvenience this causes. This upgrade will allow us to make adjustments that will increase the speed of the service, fix software bugs, and create new system functionality.

Please let us know if you have any questions at
