27 January 2012:


The required maintenance for the server that hosts the Sage Marine site will happen on Monday 30 Jan.


Sage Marine isn't going anywhere ... we will be back after an outage of about 24 hours so the world's www address servers have time to 're-find' the site.

(Yes, the above timeline was changed on 27 Jan., at 1PM.)

25 January 2012:

The Internet server that 'houses' the Sage Marine www-site and forum will be upgraded sometime in the next seven days. During the period the site and forum are transferred to a new, faster, and more secure location the 'Internet presence' of Sage Marine will be off-line. DON'T PANIC. The site and forum will 'come back' in a few hours.
