GRB Offline This Weekend

Post by Michael »

Yep, we're moving servers again. Since I'm busy with work and school I need a more managed solution. It depending on your Internet Service Provider GRB will be back online any time between Saturday and Monday morning. All support emails should be directed to gatewayredbirds@gmail.com.

GRB will be offline starting 5-29-09 at 7 PM CST.

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Thanks,
Michael

Currently GRB is accessible from my office. But some of the message boards are blocked. Will this change affect that? I mean after moving to a new server will I get a "Warned - Website Blocked" msg?

No, you shouldn't. The underlying IP will change, but the url will stay the same.

I assume the delay is do allow the DNS entry to propagate. Do you have the IP address now?

This is correct. I should have the IP tonight.

I just protested this move with 15 hours of GRB silence. That's right, no posts from me for the past 15 hours. I hope you've learned your lesson, Michael.

So no game threads this weekend? Will flashchat be working at all?

This is all to stop my steady march to 9,000 posts. But you can't stop unrelenting irrelevance.

It really depends on your ISP. I'll say it won't be available to be on the safe side, but theoretically you could be back online Friday.
