Microsoft to acquire GitHub for $7.5 billion

From Microsoft:

Microsoft Corp. on Monday announced it has reached an agreement to acquire GitHub, the world’s leading software development platform where more than 28 million developers learn, share and collaborate to create the future. Together, the two companies will empower developers to achieve more at every stage of the development lifecycle, accelerate enterprise use of GitHub, and bring Microsoft’s developer tools and services to new audiences.

It seems like a good fit with Microsoft’s embrace of open source these days.

Downtime today for server upgrade

Update:

Maintenance is complete.

Linode is offering 5 additional gigs of storage for my server so I’m going to take advantage of the offer, but I have to migrate the server to do so. Total downtime should be less than 30 minutes (hopefully).
