    All,

    I wanted to provide a quick update on the site migration to a new hosting company. Initial testing has gone well and we plan to migrate the site tonight at 3:00 AM EST.

    During this time the site will be unavailable for new post etc. Once the final sync is complete we will turn it back on. I expect this will take approximately 1hr.

    Once all is complete, we will have to update the DNS. Technically you should not be impacted by this. However if you recieve some sort of site unavailable message, it most likely means you need to refresh / reload the page so the new IP will populate. Worst case you will need to clear your memory cache.

    Please let me know if you have any questions. As we move forward I will let you know.

    Josh

    Quick update - everything is looking good. We are about 1hr and 10 minutes from taking the site offline at 3AM EST to finish the server move. One thing that may change is the final "offline" time. That may be a bit longer than 1hr depending on how long it takes to do the final data sync. We will know more in about 30 minutes. Either way, once complete we should be on the new server at the new hosting company. Once the site is settled in and I know there are no issues, we will work over next few weeks to implement the "market"

    Site should be back up. The DNS records will take 24 - 48. So if you are having any issues or know if anyone is, please let me know. Once this move it stabilized, I will be working on the market, sponsor etc again.
