    Post New server has arrived. We're moving one last time....

    Mark notified me this morning that our new server has arrived. He's currently testing it and getting it prepared. He is planning on making the switch tomorrow morning, Thursday, Feb 15th. We will experience about 15 minutes downtime as he switches hard drives from on server to the other, which is minimal. Hopefully all will go well and it will just be seen as a bump in the road.

    We are experiencing a problem with some (not all) email messages notifying us that they are undeliverable. It's common that we get these messages when a member's mailbox is full or otherwise unavailable, but the number we are getting currently indicates the problem may be on our end. We're working on it now and hope to have it resolved in a day or so. Bear with us.....

    Great job, and best of luck. I know how IT projects go, I was a datacenter director for Sprint in another life.

    You and me both, I'm a CIO at a government agency. That's why I was warning you all....

    The move will probably be in the morning hours EST since we're now hosted in North Carolina. I usually get email from Mark about 5:30 or so, so I expect it will be somewhere around that time. When we disappear, you'll know it's happening....

    At least now, I know when to put on my long, long sleeve shirt and have the wife button it up in the back. No problem, we all can deal with a little down time, considering it will bring us unlimited joy later on. See ya on the other side.
