When NT has another one of its 'outages' an ETA would be very useful.
It would even decrease the load on the server.
Lets take the current message for example.
It says stats will be back soon. Now in bovine terminology soon, can be
anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks, so that doesn't mean much.
It also says 'to let SQL catch its breath'. Now 'catch its breath' to
me means a few hours. So every now and then i'll check back to see if
MS SQL has caught up yet.
Now if it instead said, (as they case has been so far), 'stats will be
down for about a day', then i wouldn't check back at all until the next
day, and the server would have a smaller load placed on it.
Not only would it make a small decrease on the server load, it would be
very less frustrating for us participants.
