Server Move

Post by glg » Sat Nov 28, 2009 2:15 pm

I just got notification from my webhost that they're "emergency" moving datacenters either today or tomorrow. Unfortunately, this isn't the first time this has happened with this host (last time was offseason, so it wasn't as big a deal). I think they're looking at early morning, so everything should be good before the game starts.

My apologies for the inconvenience. This is the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back for me. If I end up needing to move the site to a new host, it'll be during the week when it's quieter.
