We will soon have new, cheaper, better hosting. To do this, we need to move all our data and the swimmingly.org domain name to the new place. The site will be making the move in a few days' time. There will be approximately 72 hours (three days) downtime, probably less. Those three days are to allow the domain name servers around the world to recognise that swimmingly.org belongs to a different Web server.
During that time:
a. Your swimmingly.org e-mail accounts will work intermittently, or not at all. If you have a POP account, save your old mail to your hard drive. Any new mail sent during those three days, or old saved mail, may be lost. If you have a forwarder, you need to make other arrangements for anyone who is sending mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. It is likely that they will receive a message saying that the account cannot be found.
Mail accounts would be restored over a couple of days.
b. The boards will be closed. (Surprise.) They will be re-opened once I've transferred all the data and accounts and shit.
c. The other stuff for the stories on the homepage (Movable Type) will also be transferred. This will be given least priority, although all of them have been saved: don't panic.
d. Expect a new look. (Still blue, most likely.)
e. In the meantime, keep an eye on the Swimmingly LiveJournal (you're reading it now, geniuses), located at:
Progress reports and so forth will go there.
