    Hi All,

    We are going to shut down for a little while over the next few days, this is to move the site to a new server that I am trying to configure at night. Its almost configures, but there will need to be downtime for me to make backups of the data and move the site to the new host. The other side of this means that as the DNS gets updated across the globe there will be some intermittent issues with connecting, that instability usually last a maximum of 24 hours before it all works fine again.

    I will try to minimize the downtime as much as possible by kicking everything off in one go and doing it during your night time and whilst there are no games on

    Dan

    Might try and do it in his nighttime too :)

    Potentially it could take only 3 hours. The longest part is extracting the database, restoring the database. I can do that in about 30 minutes for each action maybe a bit more

    New server is lightening fast aswell I am pleased with it so far

    Sounds great. But don't worry about GE, he can easily go and take a few snapshots of bears and the like while the site is down, we over here don't have that luxury.

    @Dan With the improvements being made could I add an extra possible
    change for consideration down the track?

    The problem:
    Virtually every time I want to go to the new postings in each thread. And the sole link for this on the front page is very close to both 1. the link for the person who started the thread and 2. the link for the first posting. So if I'm using a mobile device with my fat fingers, or if the screen jumps/moves as it is loading, then I'll often hit the wrong link.

    The request:
    Either physically separate the links or add a new button for the normal quick entry which is well away from the other links.

    Is this possible?

    So my plan is to do this migration tomorrow. I've taken leave from work. I have an appointment at the pediatrician and hospital with Archie at 11:30 am and if everything goes well the site will be migrated in the afternoon which is your early early morning. I.e. It's 9:23 pm now here.

    It should be migrated by then and you'll see a message stating as such.

    If not well I'm at the doctor or hospital still and as such the site migration will happen another time.

    Anyway we should be moved tomorrow.

    Plus today it snowed and I love snow

    Nice GE. I've decided that I'm coming to your place for Christmas this year. You got enough space for me, the missus and 3 kids :)

    Thanks. No matter what he is my little dude and my little fighter. He ain't going to die he is just going through a rough patch.

    Hard few weeks but life goes on and the site has to be moved.
