I have to shut my ColdFusion web site down for a few hours to do maintenance.

I would like any visitors to see a page that says site is shut down until  3:00 PM Pacific Time.

I don't want them to see any other pages during shutdown.

How best to do this?

Also, is there a good way to have a pop up that a few hours before shutdown I can warn visitors?
