Today, Monday April 6th 2009, Gwellin and I will be switching the forum and website over to a new permanent virtual private server otherwise called VPS.

This switch should take place in around 9 hours. The DNS could take as long 24 hours to propagate though.

After this there shouldn't be anymore switches unless this VPS doesn't work out...which isn't a real issue.

Okay then, hopefully the Forums get even better now then. Technology, you can never trust in it.

We are not changing the forum just yet, we are just moving to another server. This means the forum will be down for a variable amount of time for different people.

The forum software change will happen later.

Okay, yes, something like I thought.

But everything to make the performance better and later then improve the actual Forums will make a great deal. Well let's hope it will all be going smoothly with no bigger problems within the servers and performance then.

Here is the story, before the zelda marathon we were going to switch to a VPS with Dreamhost, however when we needed it Dreamhost stated that they had "run out of VPS's"

So we had to get a last minute VPS in order to meet the demand of the upcoming marathon, that's where inmotionhosting comes in, that is also where we are hosted now...but it is more expensive.

So we only needed it until Dreamhost had more VPS's...which is now, so we will be switching because it is cheaper and we can pay for only what we need.

It's not just the forums, the whole website will be switched over.

In about one hour from this post Local and I will be shutting down the forum.

At minimum you will not have access for at least an hour. As with last time it may take 24 hours or more for some people to be able to access the site again.

The forums were down?..hehe, see what I did there?
It's probably not said enough, but I really appreciate the work you guys do to keep the forums running smoothly. I think we all do
