Cool. I hope that you StSq guys will be happy with SqF's service (we're not
worthy, etcetera... ;-)).
Just in case you may have missed it: I'm about to transfer everything to
another machine (yeah, couldn't have picked a better time, could I?). Things
have been prepared to go as smoothly as possible, but it won't work without
downtime. I'm currently syncing the disks on both machines (keeping gigabytes
in sync over the Internet...), probably in one or two hours from now I'll take
the old box off-line, switch IP addresses, and put the new box on-line during
the time DNS needs to propagate the IP addresses (~1 hour, I kept the
time-to-live in DNS low in preparation of this transition).
I'm experienced enough to predict that Murphy will make sure that I am going
to mess things up terribly, so please be patient if SqF services aren't
available between 21:00 and 24:00 CEST (that's between noon and 3pm Pacific,
and between 3pm and 7pm Eastern).
Oh, my BDSM (Beer Drinking Sales&Marketing) colleague told me never to
announce downtime without stressing post-downtime customer benefits: the
target box is faster and it sits on an extremely fast bit of the Internet
(AboveNet). Film at 11.
