Just bumbing up to the first page as the link SK provided is rather important...

Our ever loving, helpful and hard working Admin, Lisa, has posted a server move update here (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showpost.php?p=5748277&postcount=342).

This is what she has to say:

In case you haven't seen this thread (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=201866), we're going to be moving the Absolute Write server in the next week or so.

That means sometime this week, we'll be locking the forums; you'll be able to read, but not post for a while, so we can get a fresh-hot-off-the-press backup.

What that means for you, is that there will be a while this week when you can't make new forum posts.

There is likely going to be a short period--we think just a few hours--where you may get an error message as the new (and temporary) server comes to life.

The temp server is likely going to be a bit slow; we'll need you to be patient.

As we have specific dates and time, we'll let you know.

These are ways to keep in touch in the meantime:

Dagnabbit; I'll be forced to do some nonsense like work.

I'll be enjoying a vacation from AW as the server move is taking place.

See you all around, later when everything is up and running smooth again.

What's a vacation?
