Expected downtime sometime today

Message from our provider....

"Affecting System - Your servers | Priority - High

On the 13th of March we will be moving some servers between racks in our data center. We will contact clients individually to let you know if you are affected by this. Downtime for individual servers should be short whilst we power down and physically move your server. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause and do not hesitate to contact our support staff in the usual manner should you have any questions.
Update: This work has been provisionally rescheduled for the 24th of April. We will contact clients individually and update this notice once we have confirmed this maintenance slot."

(how many of you read the 13th march bit and thought i was an idiot? Until you read the update...)

So if you see the server down at all the in next 24 hours this is why. As they have not got an exact time yet, it could be any time, but I'm just warning you now that it will be sometime soon. (If any)

If you missed the previous blog about the US pre-paid in store cards we're now accepting, click here to check it out.

I did a little work today on the "home" tab page and gave it a bit of a face-lift. That yellow box will vanish when there are no messages to be displayed. I've also made it a little easier for new players to know what they have to do to get started in that yellow box too.

Thanks & sorry for any inconvenience.

Ash

Hmmm... stuff like this has to be done now and then but don't you have more than one server. I thought you had some load balancing. If they move one at a time then we shouldn't notice...
