Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

USENET Unix FAQS

I have been working on another faq thread sites recommended by users and these Usenet FAQs really belong there. But I decided to give them their own thread and link in each faq. This overflowed the 10000 character limit per post so I had to break it into two posts. I reread all of the faqs as I tested the links. This document is showing it's age but it's still very useful. Beware though, for the most part it's over 10 years old. --- Perderabo
