    Only for a few hours. ;)

    We are migrating to a new server shortly and as a result we will be getting a new IP address which will result in the forum going down for a while.

    The migration should take place in the next day or two, so we may be off-line for a few hours either Sunday or Monday.

    Ya, too much kakpraat. :p

    Migration to our shiny new server has started. The forum will be going off-line sometime today and should hopefully be back within 24 hours.

    You may need to press F5 or CTRL and F5 to refresh your browser in order to get back on. I will send an email to all users once the migration has been completed and we are online again.

    I meant to ask if there was any way to send this like the thread that was opened but in an email form .... The reason behind this is some users are not MASAHOLICS but have asked questions that may be detrimental to the well being of their tankmates (like those seeking urgent advice or help) maybe like yesterday and then coz got late went to sleep with the hope that in the morning they will find the answers they need .... Only to maybe go online when the upgrade is taking place .... BUT ... if we receive an email saying of the planned down time then we can make plan and get the advice or even private messages long before the scheduled offline time ... Of course if its a tits up thats another story all together but I'm sure most people check their mail more than any other thing on the net and even have notification methods in place ..... OK enough filling of the old server with this post ... what do your'll think of this suggestion?

    Hey Keyaam, you are probably one of the people who ask on the phone, "are you sleeping?"

    Yes and No. :p

    We're still waiting for one component to be finalised which may result in another day's downtime sometime this week, so we're still running off our old server at the moment, I have opened the forum, obviously, until such time as we do physically switch over to the new server, then the forum will be closed again for the switchover. This should be happening in the next day or three and may result in the loss of some postings and PM's, I will try to keep the losses to a minimum, but if luck is on our side then we should have no losses at all.

    Server upgrade will begin this evening, sometime between 6pm and 8pm, roughly :p, the forum may go offline for a day or so.

    Please ensure you have any information required from PM's and posts as we will not have access to them until the server comes online again.
