NExpress down Friday evening

Innovative informed me that one of two fans in our Central INN-Reach server kicked-the-bucket. They will have to bring down the server to swap out the hardware. They will do this at 5:30 pm Friday August 26, 2011. They predict that it will take approximately 30 minutes complete. All central system activities, the catalog, request processing, etc. will be down during this time.
