Topic: Site Hosting Move

Good afternoon,

Unfortunately our current website host is ceasing hosting operations at the end of the month, therefore I will be moving the site to another host.

This shouldn't affect anything, other than you may find the site 'closed' for a couple of days during the actual change over. The reason for this is that when a domain location is changed it takes a while for the internet to catch up! Therefore both sites could potentially be running at the same time causing lost data. I was planning to upgrade the forum software but I don't think I will get this done in time.

I will try and announce at the time the actual change over days but like I say the idea is to have minimal interruption.

Simon

Even if I joined after the golden era of AJB (which according to some ended on November 12 2015, ajb007/biggrin ), it's still been fun with you...wonderful people! Arguably one of (,if not the,) best communities on the internet. Would be (/will be) very sad if I('d) see(n) it gone.

Re: Site Hosting Move

Thank you good Sir for the heads up. I think most of us can survive a couple of days. Sorry TP, I know this is going to be rough  ajb007/biggrin

Best,

Re: Site Hosting Move

In the same sentiment of TP. It's been a pleasure and a privilege to serve with you all,  well most of you.  ajb007/martini  hopefully we'll meet on the other side. In the words of Oliver Cromwell( well almost) put your faith in sico and keep your powder dry.

Re: Site Hosting Move

I’d like to add to that, I’d be lost at sea, adrift... without AJB. See you all in the other side (this is like the Millennium bug all over again  ajb007/crap ).  ajb007/martini  ajb007/martini

The Millennium Bug wasn't anywhere near as bad as predicted though. We do have that as a rather hopeful precedent!  ajb007/smile  ajb007/martini

Re: Site Hosting Move

This will only be like the millennium bug if I c**k it up!

I am starting proceedings now so see you all on the other side. Sorry for the short notice today.
