On Monday, June 29th, the entire NFBNET.Org system will be down for 
maintenance. We will be upgrading the underlying operating system for 
the whole thing, from CentOS 6 to 7. This will start at 9:00 A.M. and 
we do not exactly know how long it will take. You should assume that 
it will be all day, eight hours or more.  There is a lot of data to 
move back and forth.

This means that all our Internet Mailing Lists will be down. However, 
mail should ultimately be delivered, as most mail systems retry to 
deliver mail for two days, and we won't be down that long.

This also means that all the state affiliate, division, and chapter 
web sites that we host will be completely down.

We apologize for the inconvenience of this maintenance window, 
however, it must be done. We want to make the system as secure as 
possible, and this upgrade is necessary. The management software, 
cPanel, requires this upgrade, so it can update itself.

Thank you for your patience.

David Andrews, Systems Administrator and List Owner
