    The site will go offline for a period of time in the next day or so. Seanie, the server admin, is moving his operations to a new provider. So, if the site goes down then you'll know why. If everything goes smoothly, then we'll only be offline for several hours.

    Server move is happening tonight so if you see the site down later, there's your reason.

    Everything is mostly done, so as DNS propogates things should be coming back to normal. If you can see the site at all you're good.

    Thanks for your patience! It was worth moving :D

    So...random SQL errors on other forums. Guessing this is caused by the move? ...Or I'm just blind and this is totally temporary >_>

    A couple of large SQL databases kept failing to restore during the migration, I had to do lots of trial and error to get them to correctly run the queries. Sorry about the sql bumps.
