The forum will be shut down tonight at 8pm ET for about an hour while we migrate to a new server. This is the dedicated server that you may have heard me mention before.

Right now, this site is hosted on a shared server with about a hundred other websites. Occasionally, this creates problems and also restricts our room to grow. Moving to a dedicated server means that the server is dedicated to my hosting needs: only this site and my other site, Fixitnow.com, are hosted there. In fact, Fixitnow.com was migrated there last night and it's running zippier than ever. The downside is that it's about a ten-fold increase in my hosting costs. But, dammit, my Grasshoppers are worth it!

So, some short downtime this evening and we should see the pay off here with faster page load speeds.

If you have any questions, lemme know!

OK, false start. My server dude wasn't ready so I opened the forum back up until he's ready to do the transfer. Party on!

And we made it! We're now rockin' on a new (literally brand new) dedicated server. Should see faster page loads and mo bettah all the way around.

The migration ended up taking more like two and a half hours instead of an hour but what's a few minutes among friends? My Superbo Nunero Uno Server Dude Jim got it all in the groove.

BTW, if you need not just a good but really awesome webhost, check out Data1Systems. Jim Hale is The Server Dude. He's the developer of UltraBB, the forum software package that runs this site. He also hosts both this site and my other site, Fixitnow.com, on a dedicated server at his datacenter. But he has shared server packages, too. Check 'em out:

Weirdness! I know from past experience with this stuff that DNS propagation can play weird tricks on URLs.

Just heard back from Jim-- he says this is purely DNS propagation. Will probably resolve itself by morning. If not, please let me know!

WhooWEEEE! Wild ride tonight, folks. Sorry about the down time. Looks like Reg had this one pegged.

Just when I thought everything was peachy, along comes midnight and WHAM!

Why midnight? I dunno, I rectum compooter code must turn to pumpkins 'cuz the site wasn't loading anymore, just a blank white page.

Jim had already gone to dreamland because we both thought it was mission accomplished. That left yours so very freaking truly to poke around and tweak settings until I could get the site to pull up again. Sumpin still ain't raht but m'main man Jim will get it straightened out tomorrow... which is really today.

Dayyam, been a long night. :snooze:
