Looks like we have some down time
later this month. Here are some tentative
details from our ISP...




We are pleased to announce that we will be migrating all servers in Atlanta, GA to a new data center facility in Charlotte, NC during the month of September. The move to the new facility will enable us to continue to grow and service your needs now and in the future. Within a few days, we will be contacting you again with a window of time when your server will be offline as we shutdown the server and migrate it to the new facility in Charlotte.


Q: When will the move occur?

A: We are tenatively looking at late night Saturday, September 23 into the morning of Sunday, September 24. Once we have a confirmed date and time, we will follow up with another message with further details.


Q: How long will the outage last?

A: We will provide a 12 hour maintenance window for the move, but we anticipate that the actual outage will not last for the full maintenance window. While we cannot predict the exact amount of time required for the move, here is some additional information that should give you a general idea:


- The new facility is approximately 240 miles away from the old facility. The driving time will be about four hours.
- There will be time required for de-racking, packaging, loading, unloading, unpackaging, and re-racking the equipment, which will likely be about two hours at each location.





As our ISP gets closer to move time I should have more info
which I will share but hopefully it won't be a big deal.

Stop! Stop it, Rock! I can't take it!

That video is making me laugh myself silly here. I am not kidding. For some reason, it has touched my funny bone something fierce ...

And is making it hard to type and laugh at the same time! It really is! :biggrin-new:

Let me calculate this out. If I go to bed early sat night after two sleeping pills maybe I can sleep through this.

I'm going to do some database backups
again tonight.

I will take the DB's offline at 11:30 CST.
It may take up to an hour.

Don't forget, the site may go down tonight
as servers are moved. I have not been given
a more exact estimate as too how long we
might be down.

I saw an email this morning that came in at
3:31 am that they were just starting to bring
up our "type" of servers.

Oh well.
