Post SS.org Moving to New Server Tonight @ 12AM EST

Due to increasing traffic to SevenString.org, and the periodic downtime from DDoS attacks, it has become necessary to move the site to a new, more powerful dedicated server.

This move is scheduled to be performed tonight at 12 AM EST. The downtime will be approximately 60 minutes. Some posts or threads may be lost during the domain propagation period. Domain propagation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Look forward to seeing you back here on the new and improved dedicated server!

New Server Specs:

Dual Processor Quad Core Xeon 5430 - 2.66GHz - 2 x 12MB cache
Dual Processor Quad Core Xeon 5430 - 2.66GHz - 2 x 12MB cache
6 GB DDR2 Registered RAM
147GB SA-SCSI 15K RPM Hard Drive (files)
73GB SA-SCSI 15K RPM Hard Drive (database)
CentOS 5.x Operating System

Old Server Specs:

Dual Processor Dual Core Opteron 2212 - 2.00GHz - 4 x 1MB cache
Dual Processor Dual Core Opteron 2212 - 2.00GHz - 4 x 1MB cache
4 GB DDR2 Registered RAM
147GB SA-SCSI 10K RPM Hard Drive
CentOS 4.x Operating System

As has been mentioned, hope it goes smoothly...

Hell yes

Let's just hope nothing major breaks during the move

Liberty has always come from the subjects of it.
