Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute. WordPress 3.0.2

I attempted to upgrade my WordPress blog to 3.0.2.  It failed, and then this message came up whenever I visited my blog page.  Stressful.  The solution is to visit your webpages using a FTP program.  I use Dreamweaver and I checked the remote site.  Locate the file “.maintenance” in the root of your Blog pages and DELETE it.  This solved my problem.  You see this file is created when the upgrade is attempted, but if it fails, then it does not remove it.
