We mentioned this in the March email to store admins about 3 weeks ago, and we're emailing this again in the next hour or so, but we have scheduled maintenance this weekend on Saturday, April 9, 2011:
* America/Los Angeles, 00:00:00
* America/New York, 03:00:00
* GMT, 07:00:00
* Europe/London, 08:00:00
* Australia/Sydney, 17:00:00

and about what happens when our failover system is active
There is new functionality on our failover system, so it will now include a contact form to collect info from your potential customers that do hit that page. Read more about it here
If you have any questions please let us know. We really hate do have any downtime, but as with most web applications, scheduled maintenance is sometimes required to ensure smooth and successful future growth.
