Thew time has arrived!

We will be moving to our new servers tomorrow. What this means, you will experience an outage for a few hours sometime during the day.

We are anticipating about 4 hours. Hopefully less, but there is a lot of data to move across the country.

We will be checking in on the yahoo group as things progress and posting any developments. Its good to have anyway, since we use that whenever the forum has issues. If you haven't joined there, heres the link.

Last time we were credited with an increase in the GNP.

Starting a little later folks. The old server is in California so we will be working on left coast time when john gets up an at'em

Sent from my Droidx using tapatalk and thats probably why the typing is worse than usual.

and im on my way to buy lottery tickets.

John is in the prep stages now.. Him and I share the servers and hes moving some of his smaller sites first. The ball is rolling now, once everything is copied, we will begin testing on the new servers and if all is well we will switch over.. we're still hours away form that point. we aere shooting for later today. (keep in mind we're working on California time, so its still early there)

01-25-2012, 02:49 PM
Hoping for the best Phil!!!

Some files from Johns website(we share our server with another site) are STILL restoring. Taking alot longer than we expected. Once these files restore, we get to start copying our stuff over. sorry for delay, but were taking alot of precautions in our transfers and its taking longer than we thought it would.

By all means, take your time. Lord knows there is a ton of important information in the Woodpile that we don't want getting corrupted :thumb:

Don't loose TinFoil Girl!!!

Well look at it this way, most of the EST and CST people won't be going through withdrawals. Unless it goes into morning....then it might not be good. Actually might make CNN if it's not up around 9AM EST....either for increased work productivity or riots in the streets...one of the two.

01-25-2012, 10:40 PM
Actually, it's OK to let that one tinfoil girl go...the one with the foil hat...

01-25-2012, 11:06 PM
Thanks for your time doing this.

I was thinking of the one with the rip cord.
