Forum and website migration plan

Postby John » Sat Oct 28, 2006 4:51 pm

Over the next few days we'll be migrating to a new, more powerful box. As first stage, the forums have been renamed to forums2.introversion.co.uk (this'll eventually come back to be forums.introversion.co.uk, but it's the easiest way from a DNS perspective. On the downside, it will initially appear that all the posts are new each time we do a name change).

More updates soon!

UPDATE: darwinia.co.uk, uplink.co.uk, everybody-dies.com will soon point at the new server, so please let me know if you encounter any problems.

This simply means that the forums are faster, will crash less often, and will also allow them to withstand a Defcon sized mass of people ;)

Strange, I thought that having the new servers meant that the last ZX81 could be finally retired.......

Now that is what I call a perfect use of words!
I won't be part of that mass for a reasonable amount of time though. I just got F.E.A.R. Extraction Point yesterday!
