    Greetings :)  We're moving the site to new web servers and this will likely happen within the next few days.

    When it does happen you will see a notice that the site is temporarily closed during the server migration. The migration will likely take at least a few hours. When the migration is complete the domain name will be pointed to the new servers. Your ISP, depending on your location, might get the domain name update almost immediately or it might take the ISP 24 hours for the update.

    As the site has some complexity to the back-end configuration we're getting a server expert, @MattW@MattW, to take on the task. Once the migration plan has been mapped out we'll try to give as much notice as possible before it starts.

    All the best with the move.

    Matt has started transferring files. :)  Most likely in the next hour or so I'll be adding the 'Maintenance' page message here so please don't be alarmed if anybody visits and can't get in.

    The file copy from server-to-server is taking longer than expected so Matt will let it run overnight and pick it up again the morning his time (UK).

    The 'Cliff Notes' answer is the files being served from the CDN didn't like the server move; I'm in the midst of cleaning up now. I'm also in the midst of doing a full site backup as I don't want to touch too much before a full backup is offloaded to a safe spot. :)

    @MattW@MattW @KevinW@KevinW You've obviously done a good job already - thanks a lot! There were times when I would have enjoyed doing things like that myself - now I'm exceedingly glad I don't have to. Keep it up - it's coming on nicely. :2thumbs:
