UCSC Announcements list mailing:
This Wednesday, June 26 at 4pm PDT (UTC-7), we will be performing a hardware upgrade on the Genome Browser. The Genome Browser itself, the Download server, and the BLAT servers will all be offline for no more than one hour. Thanks in advance for your patience while we work to make the Genome Browser more responsive to your needs.
Just a public service announcement. Every time it goes down (for either planned maintenance, or earthquakes) we see a big spike in searches for mirror sites.
So I’m warning you now, but also have a mirror bookmarked for the future too:
