This means that the transition to the new server is completed and migration has made it to your local DNS servers.  

I had hoped to turn this site off on the old server before migrating, but got no real notice to go by until I woke up this morning and found that it had been completed.

Unfortunately what that means is that due to propagation times in DNS, we may have lost a few posts between midnight and 8am which were posted on the other server after migration had begun.

If you posted after 8pm CST last night, please consider reposting or replying to the earlier posts to continue.

The time that a.org was offline due to immigration, I had a private message (unread), but now not. Deleted or wrong?

This is where a lawyer would say "asked and answered council" but since I was apparently a little less than clear.

Anything sent to anyone, for anything on the site in that 12 hour period between 8pm (GMT-5) last night, and 8am (GMT-5) this morning is more than likely no longer in existence.

Great..(i guess ;)) ...What are the benefits from such a migration, if i can ask?

We can expect more bandwidth and new wonderful services (VB modules, etc) to appear to be the site even more fun and complete? :)

The answer is in the http headers:

Karlos,
You for got to mention that the site is still running. Which would not have happened if we had been on Xoops.

That was implicit, really. The hosting was going to be upgraded to 5.x regardless, which was one of the principal motivations in dumping XOOPS in the first place. That and the fact there wasn't a suitable upgrade path from the installed version of XOOPS to the latest version (specifically the additional modules) that would run fine on 5.x.

Nahhhh... Pffft..  Are you kidding?  Hell no.  I just like doing something to annoy everyone equally every once in a while, and since I couldn't claim Xoops <> vB, and couldn't claim anything else, I just woke up this morning and decided at random to swap everything to a different server.  

Again, maximizing the annoyance factor, keeping you on the edge of becoming postal, then bringing you back to sanity. That's not just my goal in life, it's my promise.. :)

(seriously though, it's just the server swap that we've all known about for months)

One benefit that might become apparent is that the site will probably be a bit faster now that it's running under PHP5. The Zend engine underwent a major overhaul. Using object oriented code is significantly more efficient performance wise under v5 than v4 and the libraries that interface to mysql were improved quite a bit too.

@Argo

Off topic, but is there any particular reason you wish to have your software/website usage tracked and available for all and sundry to pour over?

Can I just say how cool it is that we are all still here and having this discussion :)

As I would really miss Amiga.org if it was no longer here it a very big part of what makes the online Amiga community we have all come to love and rely on over the years.

So thanks for taking the time it takes to make these posts keeping us all informed and making amiga.org possible.
