    Reminder, Internet Cleaning, Aug 3rd-4th

    Internet Cleaning - It's that time again!
    As many of you know, each year the internet must be shut down for 24 hours in order to allow us to clean it. The cleaning process, which eliminates
    dead email and inactive ftp, www and gopher sites, allows for a better-working and faster internet.
    This year, the cleaning process will take place from 12:01 a.m. GMT on Aug. 3rd until 12:01 a.m. GMT on August 4th. During that 24-hour period, five powerful internet-crawling robots situated around the world will search the internet and delete any data that they find. In order to protect your valuable data from deletion we ask that you do the following:
    1. Disconnect all terminals and local area networks from their internet
    2. Shut down all internet servers, or disconnect them from the internet.
    3. Disconnect all disks and hardrives from any connections to the internet.
    4. Refrain from connecting any computer to the internet in any way. We understand the inconvenience that this may cause some internet users, and we apologize. However, we are certain that any inconveniences will be more than made up for by the increased speed and efficiency of the internet, once it has been cleared of electronic flotsam and jetsam. We thank you for your cooperation.

    Is that like August Fools or something?
