UPDATE: Due the server issues and random 503s today, I don't think it's fair for any of us to have to sit through a whole weekend with it, so we have decided to move the server upgrade date closer. See below.
Update 2 : The reason for the time of the day is because that is when it's out of office hours here, so the server guys can dedicate 110% of their time to us uninterrupted.
I posted some information on the last blog about the upcoming structure changes, and I have good news, we're commencing phase #1.
There is a total of 2 phases, the first is a complete re-design of our server structure, the second is hardware upgrades. Phase 2 may not be needed depending on how much the server improves with the new optimised setup, but this phase needs to be done regardless of any improvement, just for efficiency, optimisation and keeping things running as fast as possible.
More on phase #2 if we need it next week.
The downtime will be FRIDAY 13th JANUARY 2012 evening at 7pm server time (UK time). The downtime will be between 4 and 8 hours.
The server guys will setup a separate server which I will be updating so you can keep an eye on our progress (instead of getting the "SERVER NOT FOUND" error message).
Thanks for your patience as I try my best to get RoB as fast as possible for all.
(I am also aware it's Friday the 13th we're doing this, not superstitious are you?)
