    The site is growing extremely fast, and its a forum so its really cpu intensive. The current host the site is on can not handle this site, so once again. We will be moving. The new place seems to host other large forums so we might find a nice home for a long time there. its a little more expensive, but it should be worth it. We still arent at the point where the site warrants a full dedicated server.

    When is the move happening?
    Tomorrow early morning when I get in to work.
    8:30am CST (-6 GMT)

    Will the site be offline?
    Yes.

    How long?
    About 3 to 6 hours. Depending how long the DNS changes spread through the internet.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please post them here.

    Thank you.

    -Your friendly neighborhood Administrator.

    You could try mapping :p I've been playing TF2 almost non-stop, so my map has ground to a halt. I think I'll actually welcome this down time to get some quality work done.
