Server Upgrade - site offline -- advance warning

Rate this Entry
After what seems like a lifetime of tinkering with cgi scripts, and server settings we've got to a point where I've done as much tinkering as I can.

The server speed / uptime has been a lot better lately, but it would be nice if it was a little speedier.

So we are upgrading our server again. As a result the site will be offline from Friday night / Saturday morning/afternoon depending on your time zone.

I'm not sure how long it will take, at the minimum 8 hours or so... but who knows? Could be years?

Anyway, cheers all.

    Appreciate the heads-up, Fearless Leader. I've had no trouble whatsoever in the recent weeks- instant response at all times. Hard to think it could get better!

    MANY thanks for all the work you do.

    Sounds great Grant. I'll check at 8 hours, one minute.
    Thanks for all the work you've been doing to make this such a great resource.

    Basenotes has changed my life, so feel free to do with it as you please (the server, that is, not my life. *wink*)

    Thanks for the advance warning. I've spent too much time here anyway recently and never seen much of the football excitement in our town (and country). I hope the weather will be good!

    Make it days!
    Love your great humor, Grant.

    Thanks for the heads up Grant!

    As a precaution, I would like to download my updated wardrobe as I did last time. The option does not seem to be there now. Have I missed it? If not, is there a workaround?

    Take care my friend.

    Grant - Congratulations on getting a server upgrade and thank you for all the time and energy you put into Basenotes. Thank you for the notice. And with plenty of time to plan for it, too!

    Let's see: two hours at Barney's, an hour for TJMaxx, an hour for Loehmann's/Ross/Marshall's combined, an hour for tea, and three hours clicking the Basenotes link to see if it's back up!

    AH! Looking forward to the increase in speed as my medievil dialup service is sometimes so slow it is like watching pine sap drip from the tree..
