Hi folks. A lot has been happening lately. Here is a quick update: I have secured webhosting in a new location in Phoenix. I will be going down tomorrow to set up the new equipment I purchased there. I will then come back here and transfer everything to the new servers. Then, it is back to Texas, to retrieve the old equipment. I will be refurbishing four of the newest servers there and deploying them at the new site as well. There will be some downtime this weekend, while I effect the change. The downtime will be limited to the amount of time it takes me to transfer the GT database to the new location and set it up. To facilitate this change, I am going to prune back posts quite a bit, prune all file attachments older than two weeks, delete the search index table and I am asking that everyone voluntarily go in and prune old Private Messages. The smaller the database is, the fast I can transfer it and bring the site back up. Then DNS information for the site will change, when we transfer. It is possible that if you have visited the site recently before the transfer, your computer, or your ISP's servers, may have an old lookup for the site once things change. If this occurs, you will not be able to see the site until that cached information is cleared. If the lookup is cached on your system, simply rebooting your computer will clear it out. If your ISP is caching it, try visiting the site at an alternate URL. http://aritah.com/ also points to GT. If you normally use the regular GT address to visit the site and it isn't functioning for you after 6pm on Saturday, try the Aritah URL. If you normally use the Aritah URL, try the GT address. I will have a 'We Moved' message up on the old servers once I have made the transfer, so it will be pretty obvious if you are showing up at the old location. No matter what, all DNS caching and propagation issues should resolve themselves by the end of the weekend. Once I get things up and stable at the new location, I have to drive back to retrieve the old equipment. It will take me about a week to get there and back, although I will be working on the site during the day, while I am there. I will probably upgrade the site software while I am there, so that should happen by the middle of next week. We are getting close, folks. The site changeover should go smoothly, but there may be some disruption in email notification services for a day or two. Bear with me. So we will have some downtime this weekend, which should be limited to four hours or less. We will also have some downtime next week, probably Weds, which shouldn't last much longer. This should be the last of the downtime related to the changeover and upgrade. My new ISP has a 100% uptime guarantee, so once we get past this point, we should have some smooth sailing ahead of us. I will post more info soon. Thanks again for everyone's support. Eric Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
