    This thread will be used for forum updates and maintenance announcements.






    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Last couple of years we have build our own network in 2 core-locations: Switch DC (Amsterdam) and Evoswitch (Haarlem). As we have much more control over everything at these new locations we are now moving all servers that are still in networks we do not have full control over to Evoswitch. For this reason we have planned the following maintenance window for your server(s) with us:

    - The night of 27 to 28 November
    - Starting at November 28, 01.00 AM Amsterdam time
    - End of migration at 07.00 AM

    Tldr; forum will be offline from 1AM until 7AM at 28 November, GMT +1 timezone (Amsterdam/Europe)

    It's a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you're ready.
    I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything.
    There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now.
    And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.

    Tomorrow, 1 December, the forum will be offline between 1PM and 5PM CET timezone.
    Server of the forum will be moved to a fast SSD platform in the cloud.

    Estimated downtime: 1-2 hours.

    Migration finished.
    Chatbox still has some issues, will look into it.

    In-depth details:
    Server of the forum has been moved to an other platform in the cloud which runs on a SSD, which is much faster than a HDD.
    All software has been updated to the latest version.
    Memcached is now used on the forum since vBulletin has built-in support for this.

    Server of the forum crashed, downtime of roughly 1.5 hours.
    Everything is up and running again.

    Due to a major power outage in North-Holland/Amsterdam, the forum was offline for a couple of hours.
    Everything is up and running again.

    Forum has been moved to a new host to avoid more downtime in the future.

    For golden members:
    All forum name changes have been reset up until July 31, 2015.
    That means that if you reached your limit, you can probably change your forum name again.
