What’s up, party people. The time has come for our hard-charging dedicated server, Liquidity, to join the great bit bucket in the sky. It’s served us well, but it’s been a few years and it’s time for a migration to a new dedicated box. Say hello to Celerity! Actually, you can’t say hello yet, we’re still on the old box. But you can say hello tomorrow!
So probably tomorrow morning, somewhere around 6-7am US Central time, the forums might go offline for as little as a few minutes if everything goes right, or maybe a little longer if everything doesn’t go right.
Discourse migrations are really pretty easy—it’s pretty much just a matter of standing up a new blank forum and uploading the latest backup, so as I start the migration I’ll flip the forum to read-only and grab one final snapshot, then start the process.
Fingers crossed! Hopefully the most anyone notices is that everyone will have to log back in again, since none of your cookies will be valid.
