Default Server Move: April 14 (Cancelled)

After well over a year on HiVelocity, we have analyzed our system resource usage and felt that we've been paying for a far more powerful machine than we've needed for quite some time. We'll be moving to a new, much more afordable server. Be prepared for some downtime between the 14th and 16th.

It should be an eventful day indeed. Just make sure not to forget about the server move.

Let's hope you don't make the mistake of bad hosting again; I remember all of the 500 errors back in the day

Bad hosting, huh? What's the story behind it?

Let's just say that a previous host severely oversold their servers, which meant we had to share the CPU with a lot of other sites.

Whoa! That said, speaking of server hosting, how will the next one be? How much leeway did we have?

As long as no chaotic errors appear, the movement should be fine.

Then again, we've had a bit of that in VR's past...

Hope the server move goes smoothly.

Time for improvement I say! Not that the other one wasn't functional or good enough to my pleasing.

(when I scanned over this thread I read "Server Movie: [didn't see this] 14"... I got curious... Not what I expected)

That might explain all the HiVelocity ads I've been seeing at the bottom of this page.

So, we were going to move, but now we're not because some tech from HiVelocity saw this thread and cut our costs down? HOORAY!

Just watch out - they might try to jack up the prices when the scheduled server move date passes.

Now that you have mentioned it, what if it is precisely that someone looked at this post, then the costs stay there?

Then we have nothing we have nothing to worry about.

I'm going to use this opportunity to point out that we will be cleaning stuff up around the forum this weekend in lieu of the server move. We were going to be doing it after the weekend.

I'll point out now that the chat and the signatures are the primary things that will be affected, but there will be a little bit of downtime in other areas as well.

Edit: I think I might reveal more on VGV after it all.

Please do! I'd love to hear more than the small bits of info we have on it so far.

Avatar and Sig is good. I love to customize profile~

VGV... Suffice it to say we already have YouTube channels AND a forum board, and I was hoping for maybe something else.

That was an April Fools joke. VGV won't be a Let's Play site.
