  1. Thank you for the ample warning you provided for this outage. Since VMWare products have become such an integral part of our environment, notices such as these are extremely helpful.

  2. It is a shame that you did not host a secondary website with a copy of the downloads and read-only version of the communities. I hope there is not a next time for this long of a “planned” outage.

  3. OMFG! In Germany is a long weekend since next monday is a holiday. So I’m scared not to be the only admin who scheduled exactly this weekend for upgrading some servers etc. – hope the downloads will be back in a few hours. Anything else will break my neck…
