Just a quick heads up to the SN community. As we previously announced, Linode is migrating customers to a new data center. We already did the first stage of migration with most of the production servers two weeks ago. Now we're working our way through the remainder of the servers. As of this writing, we've migrated both webservers, both DB servers, our development server, and the fallback load balancer.

Tonight at approximately midnight EDT, we're going to migrate beryllium, which hosts our IRC server, wiki, and mail server, and boron, which is our redundant KDC/internal DNS server. During this process, IRC and email from SoylentNews will be unavailable. The site itself will stay up during this process.

After this migration, we'll only have our primary load balancer to migrate, which we will likely do over the weekend. Thank you all for your understanding.

    Just wanted to put out my sincere admiration and appreciation for the work you guys do to keep this site running so smoothly. Moving several of our servers from one data center to another, while our site is still running, and without a hiccup that I could see... most impressive!

    I recall the early days when this site's up-time was measured in hours!

    Kudos to all involved!

    I continue to greatly appreciate"meta" posts. It's always interesting tp hear real-world admin stories; warts and all.
    Much appreciation for the work that goes into the site!
