Server change

Recommended Posts

In the next few days we may experience several hours of downtime as Greasy Lake is moved to a brand new, super fast server. We are staying with the same hosting company so I expect that they will be doing all the work and that the transfer will be undramatic. Still, as with everything computer-related, problems may arise and no guarantees can be given as to how long we will be offline.... if at all.

The reason for the move is that the old server no longer supports the necessary system updates, so we simply need to future-proof the site and keep it secure. I hope the change will also, once and for all, eliminate crashes like we saw this past summer, so that we are ready when Bruce and the band hit Australia.

Thank you for your patience.

Look, it's just a server migration. Done hundreds in my time. What could possibly go wrong...

I read that as "server migraine". I hope that's not the case.

 

@tie that bind have you tried the other skin?

A day and a half without Greasy Lake is lost time. :(

So glad we're back.

Thank you, Karsten, for keeping us afloat. :)
