We are finally getting to the most difficult of our server moves, the "hotblack" server that runs the support forum and is the heaviest loaded server of them all, as well as it handling ancillary functions harking back to the day when we had three physical servers rather than over 150.

It's notable that in the last new server post I said another 50 servers were on order, actually it turns out that number is 68. At list price that is about   200,000GBP of servers that I had not been in the loop about, total order being of the order of a million GBP.

That seemed to go pretty smoothly, and means all forums are now migrated and finally our nameservers are fully split out from the forums system, allowing hotblack itself to sit more securely on our internal network.

Hotblack itself therefore should be a bit faster as it is doing less work and is on a newer faster physical server

Hi, not sure if this is related to the server change, but my forum (ukchineseairgunforum.myfreeforum.org) seems to have 'lost' a days worth of posts - no posts or new members showing for the 20th August
After double checking, latest post I can find on the 20th was 4.20 am, nothing entered during the afternoon or evening is showing. (I daresay I'll hear from some of the members on this - when they notice! )
