    New host coming!

    Hooray! My partner has set us up with a new hosting company just for the forums. We may have to switch urls (instead of absolutewrite.com/forums, it may turn into absolutewriteforums.com or something). But I am pretty sure it won't disrupt anything as far as posts, usernames, etc. This should all happen in the next week. I'll let you know.

    Cross your toes for no more down-time and no more glitches!

    I think it's kinda funny that the mods are worried I'd leave them behind.

    Right. Like I'd ever let you go... I'm dragging you there kicking and screaming if I have to! (You must have missed that spot on your contract where it says you're never allowed to leave.)

    Lori, I would've just gotten you drunk otherwise, so don't feel bad.

    My partner says it'll probably be another week before the forum moves to its new host.

    I am practicing patience, but I'm not very good at it yet.

    Does this mean that there will be down time? You know I live here, right? I will have to stock up on comfort foods now.

    The chat room isn't connected to the forums. That's our safe place and emergency meeting spot. Just make certain you know how to reach it if you can't access the link at the top of the forums.

    ooh. Good thinking. I have mIRC now and know how to get there without the link. Just make sure the AW withdrawal counselors are there...

    There shouldn't be any down time.

    I'll set up the IV bags and the comfy beds.

    Nope. Just puttin' all our papers in a new binder, so to speak. New host = new, more robust hardware to house the forums, and therefore fewer 'black-outs.' Everything should remain the same, except possibly the address to get here. If that doesn't have to change, you might not even notice when the changeover takes effect.
