[Milkyway@home] Server Maintenance 12:00 PM ET (16:00 UTC) 9/23/2022

Hey Everyone,

We've been noticing some occasional long loading times and brief connection disruptions with the server, so I'm going to take things down at noon ET tomorrow (4PM UTC) and reboot the server. It should be back up pretty quickly. Hopefully this fixes the issues we're having.

Best,
Tom
