Server migration coming 5/26
« on: May 21, 2016, 09:09:27 PM »
The service that hosts the forum will be moving things around on Thursday 5/26, migrating the forum to a new server.  If all goes well, there should only be a few minutes of downtime or glitchyness.  If all does not go well, the forum might be offline for a few hours (I hope it's not longer than than).

Unfortunately, they can't provide a more specific time window for when the cut-over will take place.  Complicating things, my current work project at my day job is currently in crunch mode, so I have little personal bandwidth to tend to things.  If bad stuff happens, things might be offline or wonky for a day or two.  If that happens, I will try to tend to things over the weekend of 5/28-5/29.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping nothing goes sideways with the server migration (but will make a full backup on Wednesday just to cover all bases).

Bottom line: if the lights go out on Thursday, I'll try and fix it ASAP, but that might be a day or two.  Thanks for your patience.

Thanks David.  We'll keep our fingers crossed.
