Yes its true, after 8 years, PP.O is going offline.
I have no choice.
You all have made it happen, and there is no way around it.
In order to transfer the more than half million posts and thousands and thousand of members, I need to shutter the site for maintenance.
We are moving to a new host that has promised excellent service and reliability; at a cost lower than the more than $600 I shell out a month here even without plastering the place with ads.
I just hate em.
So my goal is something more affordable, with equal everyday reliablity we enjoy now.
But during the database transfer, the site slows to a drunken-packer like crawl, and I'd rather not having you wonder if I finally finished a liter of vodka in one sitting and fell down on the "slow" button on my keyboard.
Join me on this adventure, I waited many months to make the move to the deadest part of the offseason.
can finally deliver the additional features I keep talking about when I am not maintaining the server all by myself!
Thank you for your patience.
This will start at 10 pm tonight CST.
Any comments before the plunge, make 'em.
They likely won't make the transfer!
