At some point in the next week (between 5th-12th April), we'll be moving the Garden Pond Forum from the current server to a nice shiny new one :D.

It should be a little bit faster, but the main reason for the move is to make sure that we're able to keep current with PHP/MySQL releases that run the forum software.

The move should be relatively painless, with perhaps ~30 mins or so when I'll need to "freeze" the site so that no content is lost during the move. Once that is done, it will take some time for DNS servers to catch up with the new server location... however I will do my best to make sure that the old server can share the new database so this isn't a problem.

Once I know a little more about when the move will take place, I'll post more here. I'm going to try and wait for a quiet time when not many people are online and then pounce :).

And we're back :)

It may be a little slow for the next day or so while there are some background things going on, but after that it will speed up hugely!

I'd ask that people hold off uploading attachments to the site for the next 24h, just as they may end up on the old server. It should be fine 24h from this post though :).
