Transition Nearing Completion

You should notice YTMD and GG are finally attempting to see end user requests... in otherwords, I opened the floodgates, the doors are open, we are online, etc... Let the testing and complaining begin. :)

Offline Notice - 10PM PST until TBA - For Data Transfer

We are going to take the board offline to avoid data corruption while we transfer data to a server in the same location as our other server ... tonight at 10PM PST the process, I'm told, is going to start. I figure within 12 hours best case it's done.... but could take longer. I may be able to bring the server online faster, but I'm at the mercy of our hosting provider. In theory, this will give less latency between our website and our database to provide the best performance and loading times with our current infrastructure. Enough nerd talk, we're putting the thingy next to the thingy to make the website faster. :) This will affect YTMD as well as GG ... apologies, future goals might separate the two, but YTMD is our sister and she lives in the same room as GG. :) LOL

FYI... Apologies, but it'll help you come up with better conversation I think...


Please also visit Hostgator and complain how long their migrations take - I put in the "Transfer Request (ID:202682)" on March 16, 2016:

Maintenance / Downtime Today - Unexpected and We apologize....

So while working out a few glitches, expecting a short return to regular use, we seem to be having a few tasks taking longer than expected. Apologies, we will be back up and running today, but you might have to work on your patience while this process finishes. Normally I would have notified prior to taking stuff down, but this was a bit unexpected and I truly apologize for the lack of notice. I was trying to get it back up and running and now I think I'm on the last bits, so I hope to have everyone back online soon!

Host issues - CURRENTLY UNEXPLAINED

We seem to be experiencing some issues, we are currently working with the host to resolve connectivity. Apologies. Please have patience and wait an hour before re-trying ... the less connect attempts, the faster the resolution.
