The Forum will go offline tonight Jan 05 at about 7:00 PM EST for a software upgrade. We anticipate a couple of hours to complete it. This is necessary as the current version is no longer supported and the upgrade includes bug fixes.
Thank you for your cooperation.

I assume it should read as "Sun Jan 06 at about 7:00 PM EST" UTC-04:00 ?
