Update 10th JAN 15:37 - The initial planned method for the patching was to save the sates of everyone's virtual server and restore it as if they had never been rebooted however this is taking significantly longer than expected the last few UK nodes that this method was applied to are being restored now and all further patching will be done with standard reboots, the extended downtime is not proving to be worth the intended convenience for customers.
Nodes brought down after this initial update will just be direct reboots.
Update 10th JAN 19:30 - Progress has been slower than expected however only 12 more nodes remain, the goal is to get this completed before 11pm, however, it may take a little longer than expected.
Update 10th JAN 21:00 - OpenVZ node 7 needs to be rebooted again due to human error, sorry for the inconvenience.
