Wave Server downtime - 10PM 26/02/09

At approx 10PM on thursday the 26th February 2009 (Tonight), the brand new AO server is being physically moved fom London to Stretford in Manchester. We anticipate this move will last between 6-7 hours from turn off in London to turn on in Manchester.

We are moving to a brand new data centre with better connection speeds, anyhow kudos to those members that signed up to the AO club to make this move possible.

Regards,

Ian Bowles

Looking good, and such, I'm gonna join, when the server is back! Or do I need the secret handshake, or the bilderberg wink?

Just the task on considering what membership type?

Re: Server downtime - 10PM 26/02/09

I'm also going to the pub Seems you always manage to plan your downtime when I'm out Ian - nice work

Incidentally, I'm no longer getting pop-ups on the forum for new private messages (but am still receiving email notifications). The feature is turned on in my profile settings - another victim of the server upgrade?

Re: Server downtime - 10PM 26/02/09

I was definitely getting pop-ups since the upgrade.. I know this cos when you use the site on a mobile running mini opera it renders the site unuseable due to the pop up until you view the message on a PC...
