Down Time

Beginning on Monday, September 10th, at around 2PM CDT this site will be down for 4 to 8 hours for a scheduled move by my hosting company. Having several unplanned interruptions caused by circumstances beyond their control, Nearly Free Speech is going to shift their operations to a new data center where they will have control.

Steve Bates of Yellow Doggerel Democrat uses the same host.

As do I.

That’s right, it slipped my mind, although you haven’t been doing much lately. You will get an e-mail from NSF, if you haven’t already.

If everything goes well, it will be 4 hours, but they are moving back-ups by two separate vehicles at two separate times to guard against problems.

Back up your site on Sunday, in case of problems.

Good luck. That kind of thing can be traumatic even if everything goes smoothly.

Not nearly as bad as your unplanned machine swap today. At least you live in an area where there are stores and you backed up.

Actually, I don’t use the laptop much because of the absence of stores up here. There is a local shop where I can get parts, but not much chance of getting a machine at a reasonable price.
