Down time coming up on 19th January ( 12:49:08 WedJan 9 2002 )

Due to restructuring at Verio (a major contributor to the backbone of the internet), the datacenter in which we are currently housed is being closed. Therefore, on Saturday, January 19, at about 3 PM Central Standard Time, our server will be moved to a new datacenter. It will remain in Denver, but will have to be physically moved about 4.5 miles.

The server, and therefore all boards, will be offline and unavailable during the move. We expect that the server will remain offline for a couple of hours, and we will do everything we can to minimize the amount of downtime as a result of the move. Note that since this is a purely physical move, there will be no impact to the data stored on any board. Once the server comes back online, you should find that everything works exactly as before.

Moving to the new datacenter comes with a few benefits. First and foremost, we will no longer have to rely exclusively on Verio for our internet connection, as we currently do. Instead, we will be able to tap into network connections from a wide variety of providers. This will improve network reliability, thanks to improved network efficiency. The new datacenter will also provide us with plenty of room to grow, as well as better environmental controls and power redundancy.

We apologize for the downtime that will be experienced. It's unfortunate, but necessary, and will be beneficial in the long term. While the server is down, we ask that you remain patient. Please post here prior to the move to ask any questions you might have. Again, we will be doing our utmost to get the server back online as soon as possible.

Thanks!

Just a reminder to all - 3PM central time today, which I believe is 9PM GMT. Let's hope everything goes smoothly and we'll be back up quickly. :smile:

OK, everything went off pretty much as planned :biggrin: We were down for just over 3 hours by my count. In some places it may have been a bit longer, as there was some re-propagation issues it seemed :smile:

To make up for the inconvenience of this, all boards on the variable plan will credited with an extra $0.50, and all boards on the free and fixed plans will recieve 3 (THREE) days without any adverts at all, starting tomorrow.

Thanks :smile:

We definitely will inform members of upcoming downtimes which are very rare. But when things happen that aren't planned, and we have a long period of unexpected downtime, we will post here to let everyone know what happened. It is important to us to keep our members informed because we understand no one wants or likes to be in the dark about what was wrong. :smile:

Well, the reason you didn't notice it is that it was a year ago. :wink: If you notice, "junglegirljlt" replied to a thread which is from January 2002.
