It's very likely that I'll put Lobsters into read-only mode for an hour or two this weekend for a big db migration to memoize comment/story scores more efficently.
Looks like the migration is going to take ~125 minutes and we're going to have the maintenance page up because I don't to break the migration up into multiple deploys. I'll run it early tomorrow morning (US/Central).
Here's a sneak peek of some feature/UI changes I'll be rolling out with the downtime.
