Just giving a heads up that the site will be down next Wednesday, November 19, beginning at 10am EST for a scheduled server upgrade. My tech guys are telling me that it will take about 4 to 6 hours to transfer everything over from our existing server to our bright and shiny new server. While the site is down, you'll see some generic and unfriendly server message. When you see that, remember this message and try again later! While the site is down, I'll post status updates to my Twitter feed and our Facebook page -- you should go ahead and follow/like now so you'll have the links to those pages.
We made it! If you're seeing this post, you know you're at the new server. You should see the pages load alot more zippy now. I'm really pleased with the initial performance. Time will tell about server stability and uptime. We're mostly intact, too. There are a few files in the Downloads section that didn't make it and will have to be re-added but that's no biggie. If you find anything else amiss, please let me know.

I'm moving all my sites, including Appliantology, to a new webhost. This will be the culmination of more than a week of preparatory work doing the initial transfers and testing behind the scenes. Sometime in the next day or so, the site will go offline while the final data sync is done and DNS transfer propagates throughout the ISP nameserver databases all over the world. At first, you will just see a "site closed" screen with a link to our Facebook page where we will be posting updates on the migration. You can also send me messages through our Facebook page. Here’s the link to our Facebook page: http://facebook.com/fixitnowsamurai After a couple days, you will reliably pull up the site on the new server and the good times will roll again! So, a little pain for what I hope is a lot of gain in terms of site stability and page load speed. Domo in advance for your patience during this process!
