Danger Will Robinson

Sometime late in the day on Friday, I will begin a major bit of maintenance on the domain. This work could be completed in 24 hours or less, but it could stretch out for a couple of days. There are a few side-effects to this.

First, I will be temporarily turning off comments on the Gone East blog. Comments posted during the "construction" would be lost anyway, so I'm gonna just eliminate the problem.

Second, just like new comments would be lost, any new postings from me would be lost, so I will not be posting in the blog for the duration. (Although I may post off-line, and all those would appear, pre-dated, after the transition.)

Finally, there's a small possibility that the site will become totally unavailable. If it does this, sorry, and just be patient until it comes back, which it should by Monday at the latest. In the very unlikely event that there's a major glitch in this transition you can check for updates, but I won't post anything there unless it's a major disaster.

When this is done it won't make anything better for you, but it will make things A LOT BETTER for me. Wish me luck.

(For the Geek minded reader, what I'm doing is moving the domain to a new host, which has more capacity and lower cost. I've done this kind of thing before, but never with the kind of DNS setup we're gonna end up with, and never with trying to transplant the working database that is the engine for this blog.)
