I sometimes wonder if it is worth getting these emails?

I seem to spend quite a bit of time reading and deleting them; the person who sends/drafts them must have a full time job just doing that with lots of staff doing the actual maintenance!

and the rest of it says
Am I likely to notice the work?
You may do, yes. The faults troubleshooter will be unavailable for the majority of the maintenance window and holding pages will be in place.

It took me about five minutes this morning once I was informed the maintenance was going ahead... I've not had to do one since smile

EDIT: Also, apologies for the incorrect date too.

How can maintenance that is scheduled to take place in 3 years time be described as emergency?

Just seems to be a lot of these warnings coming through of late.

Don't forget PN's servers take 10 days to process direct debit details so something complicated like maintenance must naturally take a few years. smile
