There will be a 2 hour rendering outage for tile.openstreetmap.org
this evening from approximately 17:00 GMT.
Static tiles will be available. Maps will still be viewable on the
openstreetmap.org homepage and on other people's websites. We’ll be
serving tiles from a back-up tile server. However rendering engines
will be de-activated, meaning that new rendering of map updates will
not take place during the maintenance period, some requests for tiles
will fail, where no cached copy is available, and tile response times
may be slower than normal.

Technical: Upgrading Intel 320 Series SSD firmware in server yevaud.
The upgrade fixes the dreaded "8MB disk" issue.
