    Server Moved

    Discussion in 'Announcements' started by Daniel, Feb 21, 2008.

    Well, it took about 13 hours to get the job done... but the server's been moved.

    It shouldn't have taken this long, but because some of the hardware and technical settings on the new host were different, I ran into some unexpected problems.

    It appears that things have been successfully moved. For some people it may still be unaccessible for 24 hours (in some cases up to 48) because of the nameserver change. However, for most of you it should be accessible as of now.

    Sorry again for the downtime. It's possible we may run into problems - if you do, please report them in this thread.

    I'll say one thing - the forum index loaded more quickly than it has in weeks.

    An auspicious start!

    Yup, I did get some sleep once I realized (around 3 am) that it would be several more hours. Files were still be transfered most of the time I was sleeping though, so that was a good thing.

    Smilies should be back. I'm still trying to figure out why the blog icons aren't showing up (I've reuploaded them).

    Hopefully not. The difference in performance from moving to the new host has been nothing short of astounding.
