    Hi everyone...

    Sorry about the downtime for the last 75 minutes or so.

    The ASF server went haywire for some reason... still trying to find out what the problem is. :(

    In about three hours time (from approximately 1pm today), ASF will be offline for around 10 hours while the host physically moves all the servers to a new facility.

    It has nothing to do with Brexit. ;)

    I apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.

    Yes, but unlike Brexit volatility will be minimal. :D

    My apologies for that extended downtime over the weekend. It went on much longer than I expected.

    It involved a complicated data centre migration and there were a number of technical issues that came up and needless to say things did not go smoothly. However, we are back up now and the good news is I have some hair left after spending a good portion of the weekend tearing most of it out.

    You are very welcome. There is a website search error that I have just contacted the host about. It should be fixed shortly. If anyone else experiences any issues or problems after the data centre migration please let me know and I will do my best to get them fixed ASAP.

    All working well here Joe.

    I thought yesterday, has an evil alliance of extreme Rightists, extreme Leftists, Trumpists, Clintonistas, Warmists, Denialists, Remainists and Leavists, finally had enough of the General Chat threads and declared cyber warfare on ASF.

    But it was just site maintenance, phew!

    Was this recent maintennance related to the updates that we spoke of a few weeks/months back with the "like button" amongst other things?
    Everything working fine on my end :xyxthumbs

    No, this maintenance downtime was just a hosting data centre migration. The software platform change/website redesign is still coming. If all goes to plan that should happen in about a month or so.

    Glad to hear all is working well at your end. I have noticed that the page loading times seem to be a little faster this morning.

    Thanks, Joe, for all your efforts.
    And Thank Goodness, it's all working fine again at my end as well.

    Somehow I had missed your forewarning about those "ten hours server migration". Had I known that, I would have automatically considered two days or more :1zhelp:
    I wasn't so much worried about fancy Fabians and Reactionaries, but considered the possibility that some crooked Legal Eagles might have effected a Blockout. Very much relieved to read it's been "the usual" IT hiccup.

    Working fine here too, just curious though, why are you hosting it in California anyway? Just got a good deal there or? Seems odd for "aussie" stock forums, would think it would be here, especially for speed.

    Not that the speed is bad at all, was just wondering :)

    I have been with the same host for 10 years. At the time I first signed up it was a good deal and I found their technicians to be very knowledgeable and quick to respond and fix any problems. Changing hosts is a real pain and I haven't had any real reason to change even though there has been the odd hiccup here and there.
