FW Server Downtime 6-7th April

Hi Crew,

So you are all aware and some of you may have noticed that the site has crashed several times in the last week.  I have managed to patch it up pretty quickly, but it turns out the sites hdd at the server location is starting to fail, which means I'm going to have to relocate it onto another hard drive and basically stuff around with it for a while until it gets sorted.  As the sites database is around 35 gigabyte, the process is likely to take some time.

I'm currently in discussion with the sites host and my technician, but at some point in the near future the site is likely to be down for the day.  (hopefully only a few hours, but you never know with these things)

Just thought I would give you guys a bit of warning that its coming.

Cheers,

Adam

 

*Btw: The site is currently backing up if you are wondering why its so slow.
