As we move your equipment from our Reston, Virginia to Herndon, Virginia data center we will release more details. At this time, we are performing our last bit of testing and preparing the new data center for our infrastructure.  If you have any questions, please refer to or submit a help desk ticket prior the the beginning of the scheduled maintenance notice.

So don't freak tonight!
I expect to pass through this world but once;
any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now;
let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
