    Hi all, good news, I think I'm finally ready to move dnbforum.com to it's new web server!

    I'm planning on doing it either later today or tomorrow, but I thought I'd keep you up to date on what will happen.

    I'll close the forum on the old server and give you a temporary web address to access the forum on (which will be running off the new server) - both forums will be closed for a short amount of time while I backup and move the database across. Once the database is across you'll be able to start posting on the temporary address.

    Once all the DNS changes have taken place I'll let you know, and going to dnbforum.com will automatically take you to the new server (this may take up to 48 hours).

    That's the plan, hopefully it'll go smoothly! Thanks for your continued patience during the downtime, slow site and the moving around.

    Here's to a fast and stable dnbforum.com, woop!
