We've scheduled downtime to move to a new server, and perform some maintenance. It will begin Tuesday, November 27th a 10PM EST, and should last approximately 4-6 hours. During this time the forums will be unavailable. We thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.

P.S. I also modified this forum. Replies are now allowed.

I'll be ready to stay up all night with you again, and keep the coffee warm. :)

With DT on the job, I know everything will be fine. :)

Blair's an old hand at this moving and updating thing. We just like to give him grief because of the time when our Database got all corrupted somehow. I don't know all the technical details, but it was a nightmare. :)

We'll be moved, updated, and running again in no time. No one will suffer withdrawls, I promise!


*Kat points out that everyone COULD join us in the #geekstogo chat room that night to chat during the downtime :)

That is a GREAT Idea Kat - Right Now, my Home Server is being reinstalled and files are being moved as we speak - Blair probably can Do the maintainence and the move about as fast as I can backup and restore a Windows machine :) (That is because he is darn good at what he does ;) :)

Chief Dunderhead? Don't blame yourself too much, it's not your fault.

Hope the next move goes well! :)
