Phase 1 complete...

Hey all,

OK, the first bit is done We've moved our existing servers out of Hosting365 and into Digiweb and rejigged our network a bit.

Phase 2 is bringing online the new hardware that we've bought, hopefully future proofing (for the next couple of months at least) boards.ie and allowing us to bring back some of the sorely missed features, such as searching and the archive. We'll commence this over the next week or so.

I'd like to once again take the chance to thank Hosting365 (thanks guys!) for the excellent support and help they've given us over the years. I'd also like to thank Digiweb (yay!) for allowing us to move to their new datacentre - this move will help us complete our expansion and hopefully keep boards.ie a nippy website!

Unfortunately, with every move and upgrade, there's going to be some hiccups - while things ought to be generally faster, we're bound to forget some items, or maybe screw up some other ones. If you spot anything broken, please let us know by posting here - we'll get on it ASAP.

Lastly, for the next day or so, there are going to be some DNS issues - it takes time for the internet to realise where 'www.boards.ie' now is - don't sweat these. They will fix themselves over the weekend.

Have a good weekend all, and thanks for being patient. The new improved boards.ie starts here!

Feedback won't know itself soon enough without the 'Can we have search back?' threads. Fair play to all involved.

More feedback - we're finding a very strange bug with one of the webservers. One is acting just fine and speeding along - the other is going ape**** for some reason

We'll sort it out shortly, no doubt.
