I appreciate the sentiment but I think a couple of <sarcasm> tags would help those El Reg readers for whom English is not necessarily their native tongue.

WRT "some routine updates in some of our exchanges from 1AM to 6AM tomorrow morning, to make improvements to your service." reminds me of an entry in the Devil's DP Dictionary (Stan Kelly-Bootle?) that defined a one-line patch as a change so small it didn't require testing before it was allowed to crash the main system. The problem was cured by a one-line patch. The dictionary reference also linked to "recursion".

(the exact reference may be a bit different as many brain cells have passed away since I last read it.)
