Out hosting service will be moving our database server to a new server as part of a system software and hardware upgrade. The migration will take all day to complete; we will experience 5 to 20 minutes of downtime to our site at some point during the migration.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause!

I'll stock the bunker with Beer and Pizza . . . . . and a full kindle.  :D


humor aside: so . . . it'll only be down a short time, sometime Saturday, but no real idea when, yes?

We had an outage for about 3 hours this morning -- I had to reboot to get the site up again. It seems to be running well now - and I am presuming that the server move is complete for us.
