DOWNTIME - Advance warning - COMPLETED

Post by jtaylor » Wed Mar 04, 2009 12:48 pm

I've agreed with our hosting company that they're going to move our hosting location to new servers in the UK.

This should have a reasonable increase in page refresh times (although I've not seen this as an issue recently).

In order to perform the move, we'll need to take the forum offline for up to ONE DAY, THIS WEEKEND (7th and 8th March 2009) I'm not certain which day it will be, and hopefully it'll be significantly less time, provided things go to plan.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

This is really odd, I was on my sister's computer last night and when I tried loggin on here I was told that the site was down for the upgrade - dated March 6th.

When I logged on tnow, Saturday morning at home this forum was marked as having a new message.

Sorry - all my fault!!

I did an upgrade to the latest software version last night, and at the same time moved that old topic so that it was no longer an announcement.

Sorry!

So I am not going mad.

and I don't need anyone telling me it's too late.
