More website maintenance and its effect on comments

Last week, we had some site maintenance to fix some of our recurring server problems here at

Unfortunately, the maintenance did not solve all of our problems, and the site will undergo more maintenance from 4 to 5:30 p.m. CST today.

What does that mean? Comments posted and comments approved between those times might disappear. So if possible, hold off on your comments until after 5:30 CST to make sure your voice is heard.

This week, we celebrate the first anniversary of the launch of our podcast, NCR in Conversation. Catch the latest episode here.
