    PackerForum.com will be moving to a new server on Tuesday the 15th around 11PM PST. OUr network of sites are continuing to grow and that means more traffic. Which ultimately means more hardware required.

    Expected Downtime: 15 minutes

    Couple Quick Specs on the new server:

    • Intel Core2Duo 3.0 775 - E8400
    • 8 Gigs of Ram
    • 2 - 500 Gigs SATA Drives
    • 100mbps Switch
    • Premium Bandwidth Useage
    Basically the new server is about 10 times better than what we are on now and you should see a noticeable increase in speed while surfing this site.

    Good question, LOL. Not 100% sure, but the downtime should be like 15 minutes at the most.

    The server move is completed and everything "should" be working correctly.

    Please send me a PM if you find that something is not working correctly.

    No problem. Sorry about the IP issue, totally forgot about that caching issue. Postponed some of my other site moves to tonight so I can try and find a solution.
