Cheers Veks; hope it goes smoothly and thanks for the effort you put into the sites and extra double-thanks for the timing - you've managed to organise the downtime to start within an hour of when I go off on holiday  ;D

Thanks for the head-up. I'll miss Elliquiy during the down period. I hope all goes well. I'll be following it on Twitter.

Thanks again for all your efforts to make this wonderful forum possible.

Thanks for all your hard work Vekseid, You are a hero keeping the site running, as a fairly new member I  must compliment you for this oasis  on the net. I have never met such a lovely cross section of people who have made me welcome and kept me safe.

Good luck with the changeover.

Sofi xx

P.S. I've actually got a tear in my eye, I have finally found a place I can call home.

Vekseid,
Thanks a lot for all the hard work :). Unfortunately my lack of experience in operations and forum software precludes me from helping but I have seen the operation work involve in successful migration. So my sympathies and thanks specially since you have to do it all alone without someone else to verify checklists/steps. Good luck with everything.

I probably am most looking at the return of search to find roleplays that I found interesting but didn't bookmark. This is primarily a same codebases migration right? Or have you also made some updates in the system other than turning back on some high overhead feature.

The plan was for the new forum software on the new hardware right (if my broken memory serves right this time) but we had to move ahead of schedule right?

See you all soon on the other side :P

As someone who has done more than a few server migrations in the past, may yours run as smooth as silk, Veks.

Also, thank you for everything you do for this site, mate. You're bloody brilliant and a fine fellow to boot.

Looking at the Who's Online list I'd swear some of you are playing "Who gets the last PM?" games or something.
