SERVER MOVE ANNOUNCEMENT

Heads-up folks. We're going to be moving the website to a different server. The move will occur in the wee hours of the morning while many of us slumber. The move could occur as soon as wee hours Thursday morning and shouldn't take too long.

As part of the move we're also redirecting the DNS to the new box so that may take longer to propagate to everyone's individual ISP but rest assured you can keep abreast of progress at http://twitter.com/wristtwisters

Thanks.

cool beans, thanks for the info

Do we all need to log off before the move?
or can we stay up all night & watch the magic happen

What's a Twitter?

twit –noun Informal.
an insignificant or bothersome person.
-slang A foolishly annoying person.

So Twitter = people on the internet.

I see now.

twitter sucks. I just tried going to the link above and it took forever to load, then didn't even load all the images. It was a mess. I'm not blocked and everything else is moving quickly.

Press Any Key To Continue.

Anyone who says "super duper" is looking for two snaps up.

Ah, kewl. I see you finally decided to purge all those worrisome 919 owners with the old "server move" ploy.

Well. Seeing as I'm one of those pesky niner folk, I'll be sure to avoid said move thereby lessening traffic and easing the shift.

Do I get to keep my post count or do I start at tirone again?

I was working sooooo hard

Keep your post count? Ha, no matter how hard I try, I can't make my posts count at all! Even Brian ignores me as hair brained. Sigh.
Any ways, I hope the server shift shortens the lag on the page loads. And doesn't drop the fine, fine content of the site.
