Estimated downtime, 2-4 hours.

I'm going to migrate the site to a new server tonight. It's way faster and better equipped to handle our growth. I'll shut the forum down at 8:00pm EST and start the migration. Once the migration finishes I will reopen the forum.

I don't expect the actual migration to take longer than an hour or two; however the internet is slow at updating it's locations. Without going into techie detail, it takes a while for the internet to realize the site has moved. For a few hours after the migration some internet providers may still send you to the old server. I have tried to mitigate this as much as possible by forcing the update time down to 5 minutes.

The new server is one smoking hot sexy babe and this place is going to fly. :pickle:

Yall have a little while longer. Maybe 30 min. The final backup I took is taking a while to download. I think it's all those damn images Hicks uploaded.
