The BizMiner database will undergo maintenance starting at 11:00 pm ET on Friday, October 18th. This will likely cause unusual sluggishness in site navigation and longer than normal report loading times. We apologize for any temporary inconvenience and anticipate that normal operations and speeds will resume by 3:30 PM ET on Saturday, October 19. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
