I have taken to getting up at 4:30am and playing a couple of hours chess before going to work and at 5:00am exactly the site goes off line for about 12 minutes.
I'm not moaning about this, I'm just curious to know what happens, it's too short a time to be a tape backup - is it mirroring / replicating? Deletion of temp files / calculation of clan points? What? I'm just curious to know.

Thanks for that info Mwmiller.
But what I want to know, Russ, is what happens? As an IT professional I'm just curious to know what that 15 mins is all about.
