Default Notice of downtime - Tuesday 26th May or Wednesday 27th May
MTS2 will be down on one of these days (I don't know which yet) for a switch upgrade and a server migration. During the migration all MTS2 servers will be offline, including downloads, thumbs, and normal www. After the migration all MTS2 servers will have new IP addresses, and there will be additional downtime to bring a secondary database server online.

This message is purely informational and will self-destruct in 27 seconds.

*quickly stocks up on tutorials and downloads* Excellent! I don't know much about computers, so forgive me if this is a stupid question, but: If the IP address for the site changes, will any http links we use cease to work after the change?

No, whitewater, since you dont access the site via IP, you access it via name.

Thanks for the warning.

(Idly wondering if the new servers will be on better speaking terms with my e-mail server now that I have subscribed to 3/4 of the board in the secure knowledge that it wouldn't be flooding my e-mail. )

I am Ghost. My husband is sidneydoj. I post, he downloads, and I wanted to keep my post count.

Today is the 26th so here's hoping the site doesn't go kaput on me.
You're doing a great job Delphy.

Sssh, don't tell him, he might remember!

Ghost, the lack of email is deliberate (it murdered the server). As far as I know that won't change, though I could be wrong.

Okay so I was fully expecting the switch upgrade and migration to be yesterday. I made sure all the backups where current, shut everything down in preparation and... nothing.

Sorry folks. Let's hope that it happens today. To make things easier, I'm going to keep downloads and thumbs offline and just run with the basic forums.

I'll update this thread as I hear more from the hosting company.
