Within 24-48 hours, we should expect the process of switching to new server hardware powered by CentOS to begin. I am not anticipating much downtime, though there may be some.

Basically, what will happen is the current data for the boards will be copied over to the new server. The data being copied over will be up to date as possible, however, there is a small chance a post/topic or two could be lost if a topic/post is made immediately after the copy has been transferred.

Once data has been transferred, traffic will be redirected to the new server.

I'm waiting on information about any required DNS changes and possibly, a new server name which would require some members utilizing SSL to update there bookmarks (the url that starts of with ###gator).

I'll keep you all updated on the changes and will try to notify you when the changes are occurring so you can expect it.

edit/update:
Everything has been successfully moved over to the new hardware.

lol, it shouldn't be that bad. Hopefully just long enough to make coffee! Besides, things *should* work faster when everything switches over smileys with beer
