Cutting over to new web servers tonight


— 10:39 PM on October 21, 2006

If all goes as planned, we'll be running on new servers by Sunday morning. We're making last-minute preparations right now, and then we'll attempt to cut to the new boxes. If there's a problem, we'll fall back to the old ones.

There might be a period of time when some folks will see one server and others will see another while the DNS change propagates. During that time, some forum and comments posts may get lost in the shuffle (i.e., posted into the old web/DB servers after the new web/DB servers are live.) If that happens, well, sorry. We've taken measures to minimize that time window, though.

If you see anything really weird happening with the site in the next couple of days, post a comment below or shoot us some email, so we can look into it. With luck, we'll be running faster than ever soon. Thanks.
