At 11:00 p.m. EST on Saturday, February 16, online properties of Dark Wraith Publishing that are hosted by LivingDot
will be unavailable during the move of The Dark Wraith Forums
, Big Brass Blog
, The UnCapitalist Journal
, Dark Wraith Publishing Online Store
, and the blogScream News Wire
service from their original server, Molinard, to a new, larger, faster server called Chanel. This is being done because the Webhosting service found in its audit that Dark Wraith Publishing properties hosted by LivingDot are now in the Webhost's top 10 in terms of traffic. It should be noted that DWP Podcasting
services and several Weblogs unknown to regulars here are not hosted by LivingDot, but are instead on a capacious server at 1&1 Webhosting
, so aggregate traffic for the entirety of Dark Wraith Publishing is now even greater than that being experienced by LivingDot.
The outage may last through the night, but we expect The Dark Wraith Forums, Big Brass Blog, The UnCapitalist Journal, Dark Wraith Publishing Online Store, and the blogScream News Wire service to be back online by daybreak on Sunday, February 17.
In the meantime, regulars should consider this an open thread, so write something in the comments. It doesn't have to be particularly insightful, although deep pessimism and unmitigated cynicism are always welcome. Cheerfulness will be tolerated, too, of course, but that's just because your host is fundamentally a very upbeat person.
Okay, that last sentence, while by no means a real knee-slapper, was mildly risible.
The Dark Wraith thanks you for your support.
