just a note to everyone to let you know that the site will be moving to a different server as of tonight. hopefully this will result in improved connectivity for visitors to the couch.

i am doing a full backup today at noon, pacific standard time, to ensure that no one's posts will be lost. hopefully all will go smoothly. if you have any trouble accessing the site over the next 24 hours, please be patient.

thanks,
lib

hm. the support rep told me it was going to happen last night but i'm not able to login through the new server, so it looks like the move hasn't been done yet. meanwhile i'm doing frequent backups until i hear from them. i'll keep you guys posted. thumb up

I assume not. We're just changing physical machines. Our cyber reality remains untouched... raised eyebrow

Isn't that right Lib?

i'm not sure if an improvement the connection speed will be noticeable, although it may. mainly my concern was that on the old server, there were frequent periods where visitors, including myself, couldn't connect to the site at all. i've received a few complaints about the connection speed as well, but slow connection speeds can be caused by any number of things, not just server problems. in any case, hopefully connectivity will be a little smoother in general from here on out.
