This morning starting at 2 AM until about 7:30 the BBQ Forum was down while the server was moved to a new data center in NJ. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. The server is still being managed by the same company that I have used for many years. They had outgrow their old facility and moved into a new Tier 3 + data center facility. This means that nearly every single critical infrastructure system is built in redundant fashion. This also means that the data center is making money and their business is healthy. The data center says that this move will provide better performance and more security, I guess we will see it that prat is true.

This is the third time in the nineteen years, that I have had a data center move. Every time I have gone through these data center moves nothing has gone wrong but I set here worrying that they will drop and break my servers as they move all the equipment around. I was much calmer this time but still it is a stressful event for me.
