    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
