Site Downtime

Post by mkowdley » Fri Feb 27, 2009 4:25 am

Hi everyone.It's very likely that the site will be down for a few days starting this afternoon. The forums are still hosted at the former owner's datacenter, and I was notified just now that their servers are being shut off this afternoon.I'm flying down to California tonight to install the new hardware at the new datacenter, and then the tricky process of getting the forums moved over will begin. "Tricky" because the software is unsupported, and no upgrades or documentation is available. Good times The WWW site will stay up since it's hosted at a different location that isn't being shut off, and I'll post updates there as frequently as I can.Mike K.

I'm going to have to lock the forums now so that I can start backing up the data before the servers go offline. See you all on the other side.Mike K.
