Soppy as it sounds, what ever happens, I suppose now's a good time to point out - Hobbes, you've always done a really good job.  :)

Heck, personally I failed to maintain motivation after the first Firaxis release, and that went relatively smoothly. I don't deal well with change.

Hi all

This took longer than anticipated but it has finally happened!

It's live on Joshua's server finally and editing is enabled again.

Might take a while for the domain IP change to load around the web as I've only just done that bit, but if you go to edit a page and hit CTRL+F5 and the green message I put up isn't there then you're viewing it on the new server :)

Hopefully not *crosses fingers*

It's alright - I worked it out and there's now a message, but only on the edit page.

This makes sense as there's a setting in the system that locks it for edits only and lets people browse the site still, so editing a page shows the warning at the top and I've made it stand out.

The plan is to move it today. Since it's all locked down, in theory if Joshua tests everything nobody will be any the wiser and I'll just post a message when it's all up again. It'll probably be offline for the next few hours at least.

Sounds like he's putting together a beast of a server for this by the way, so should be nice and fast from now on :)

This is taking a little longer than anticipated, but will definitely be worth the wait - I just want to keep edits on hold whilst this takes place as I know how annoying it is to lose work!

Joshua seems willing to throw really fast hardware at this so I'm currently creating a backup with a view to getting this moved tonight/tomorrow.

Will this cause any issues? I'm not sure what the best way is to alert anyone over on the site so if someone has that power whilst I'm sorting out backups that would be appreciated.

It's like when I'm fixing IT issues in my day job - proximity to someone's PC normally makes it spontaneously work. That and turning it off and on again :)

First, I just want to share that, after 10 months of contractor nightmare during the renovation of my apartment, I finally moved my stuff back today. There might be some sort of metaphysical connection here with the UFOPaedia but I'm too tired to consider it right now Posted Image

Hobbes - can you PM me Joshua's contact details so I can have a chat? Infinite resources sounds the way to go Posted Image

I've just msg Jo5hua asking for contact details, will PM you once I get them.

EDIT - I've just PM them to you

I got to hand it to you Hobbes, you've sort of moved the mountain, or just gave it a push.
