Hosting Update

Just to let everyone know that over the next week or so, our hosting provider is performing a major systems upgrade and will be migrating the site to a new platform. It's possible that there may be some short periods where the board is down or behaves erratically. If you do encounter any issues, just be patient and try again in an hour or so. Once I have confirmation that the migration process is complete, I'll let everyone know.
On the basis of past experience, I'm not expecting any major issues; LCN seem very organised and professional. But it's normal to have a few transitory issues with a job of this sort, so I thought I'd let everyone know what was going on so that if we do have any downtime, we all know why.
I was planning to do a software upgrade on the site, but I've put that on hold temporarily while the migration process is ongoing. Once everything is bedded in, I'll go ahead with that process.

I've had confirmation that the migration process will begin at midnight on the 1st of September, and is expected to last about 4 hours, during which time the site will be unavailable. So if all goes according to plan, we'll be up and running on the new platform on Wednesday morning. My personal experience is that it's not uncommon for these exercises to take longer than expected, so if you find the site is down first thing on Wednesday, just be patient.
