    OptiBoard Moving to New Server

    After 4 yours on the same server (and two hard drive replacements) OptiBoard is being moved to a brand new server. The new server has 4 times the processor speed and twice the memory of the old server so things should zip along pretty well on it. :)

    I am going to begin the OptiBoard migration sometime tomorrow (Saturday evening). While the actual transfer of the site should take less than an hour, it may take 1-3 days for the DNS (Domain Name Servers) to fully propogate.

    The Board on the old server will be closed when the migration begins. If you see the closed board message, this means that the new DNS has not propogated to your Internet Service Provider yet. The new site will be opened immediately so if you do see an open board, this means that you are on the new site.

    The actual move took about 2 hours - longer than I expected. But it's done now. If you are reading this, then you are on the new server. :)
