Servers are back up and running, faster and smoother than before. No trucks – no steaming locomotives . . everything went off as planned…timed down to the second with only approximately 3.5 hours of server downtime – – more than we wanted, but less than we planned for.
We took the servers down when the clock struck 11PM EST exactly – to the second, on our clock. For those of you who wrote in and submitted a concern that they went down 5 minutes, 3 minutes or 2 minutes before 11PM EST – then all I can say is it’s entirely possible that our clocks aren’t completely synced with yours, down to the minute or second. I would love to apologize for the 2-5 minute difference on our individual clocks, however – it is something over which I have no control . . . we shut the servers down according to our server clocks – which just happens to be synced with the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
I guess we should have all synchronized our watches together 🙂
What I can say is that we are on our way towards providing a huge heaping load more services, packages, greater response time and faster servers with more options than ever before.
I can now take a deep breath and sigh with relief that it’s over . . . put my cyanide pill and suicide note away for possible future use. . . and maybe even get some sleep.
Well.. except for the fact that Chris has to fly out of here at 6am in the morning – he just went to sleep, so I figured I’d stay up until he has to leave so I can wake him in time for his flight.
THEN I’ll sleep.

Nice Job! With this move did that increase the available bandwidth? It seems to be faster loads…or is it La Shawn Barber taking over?
Thanks, Michael. The move did increase the speed of our data lines, yes . . there is a noticable difference.
I think La Shawn took over a LONG time ago – – that girl is a runaway train! It’s good to see 🙂
