UPDATE: All done!
We will be taking Etsy’s blog, the Storque, down for maintenance on Tuesday, November 18, 2008, from 10:30pm EST until 12:30am Wednesday.
When you return to reading the Storque — as we hope you do obsessively — you’ll find pages loading a lot faster. Many of the other changes we’re making will likely be invisible to you: optimization fixes and admin panel features. However, you will see neat little widgets to add a post to Facebook or Stumbleupon.
Thank you in advance for waiting through the downtime and let us know if you see any problems when we come back online.
