My awesome webhost, Data1Systems, is installing a new server for the forum tonight starting at 9pm ET. Hopefully, everything will go smoothly and there will only be a couple hours of downtime. You may try to go to applianceguru.com and get an error message of "site not found" or something to that effect. Ain't no thang, the domain just needs to propagate to the new server. By tomorrow, things should be zipping along better than ever.

Domo!

Here are some suggestions for the Top 10 Things To Do On Friday Night.

I know what I'll be doing: moving into a new file sharing service! Woot-woot! Check out SugarSync, looks like exactly the service I've been looking for since Xdrive shat the bed. I've been using MediaFire and it's good for a straight file sharing service but it doesn't sync automatically with files on my pooter-- I gotta load each one up manually. Can you say, "TEDIOUS!" SugarSync syncs with selected folders on my pooter all i the background, while I'm working on other stuff. AND, double extra special bonus, I can access and share files via my iPhone! Koo-koo-koolio! :bananadance:

7) ... a bubble bath is a wonderful way to spend Friday night.
Put on some music, pour a glass of wine, submerge into the silky bubbles... 

BUTTTT .......We're not done, yet ...

Well, I thought it was too smooth to be true. Turns out that my host did, in fact, do the migration but we're still on the old server because he didn't realize that I have to change the DNS to make the domain name point to the new server. It's convoluted, but the bottom line is that we're still on the old server and, unless he re-transfers everything to the new server again, all the new posts and users since last night will be lost. OY!

I'm working it out with him now and hopefully we'll re-do the migration today sometime and not lose any information here. It also means that at some point today, the forum will be down again for a couple hours. I'll keep you posted here.

Mucho domos for your patient forbearance!

Apologies to all, still a few kinks. Guess this migration isn't going any better than the previous ones. Had an outage most of the day and then, when restored, we're still here on the old server. So, a bit more down time coming, maybe this evening. I'll try to post details of the next outage here. Thanks again for hanging with me through this! :dude:

And we made it! Welcome to the new server. Kudos to my webhost! Despite my screwing up the first transfer, he was still able to complete the migration this weekend and kept me informed via email the entire time. I don't know of any other webhost that offers that kind of personal service.

Hopefully, we're done with migrations for a while.

Ok, let's kick some appliance butt!
