Server Migration
« on: September 05, 2015, 10:44:16 PM »
Time has come to move to a new server.

New, more secure operating system.
Four times more disk space.
Four times more memory.

The new server is actually running now.  I have done a test migration which went fairly smoothly and I will do one or two more before going live.

I'm thinking of doing the final migration and cut over next Saturday night.

The current server will remain available until the end of September.  Should anything get left behind we will be able to recover it from there.

We have to make ourselves seem more normal than is good for our curiousity.

You wouldn't need a new server if that stupid "Provocative Updates" thread would go away
