IMHO as a professional web dev, this is a bad way to do it, because it conflates non-bug with bug status (meaning that if your app *actually* goes down, which it will, you don't get any emails telling you something's wrong), and is a poor UI. Instead, use a maintenance page, a la You're in PHP, so I don't know if there's something similar for you, but for me using Rails + Capistrano it's as easy as cap deploy:web:disable :) You already know my opinions about the app itself. Congratulations and enjoy. ;) - Sai
