Email or announcement when the platform goes down


I have just discovered that when the astroprint cloud is taken down for maintenance I cannot login or use either my Astrobox or Astrobox Touch because they cant verify with the cloud. Pretty inconvenient.

Please can we :-
a) Get an announcement or email from Astroprint telling us when planned maintenance is going to happen?
b) Get an Announcement or email when emergency maintenance is happening?
c) Have a way to authenticate that allows the Pi boxes to continue working while the cloud is offline?

Cheers Hugh


Yes. Sorry about that @Hugh_Bourne. This was (is) unscheduled maintenance in preparation to upcoming upgrades.
