Moving day... again!
Well it's obviously that time of the year - or whatever time it is - because we are moving the site to a new server.
It's all in a day's work for Bicycle Repair Man as Monty Python says, and it seems that this Bicycle Repair Man is a Server Repair Man.
We've had some trouble lately with the server we're running on at Hostgator, and they keep on shutting down the site, much to our own frustration and the dismay of our visitors who meet a short and ugly notice that they are not allowed access to the site!
Well, they are! And more than welcome at that!
But Hostgator sees it differently and regularly sends us kind but unwanted mails about server shutdowns, and this is getting too much.
So we are moving again. GFF gets its own virtual server in stead of sharing the space with others, we have a playing field of our own and can do whatever we want without disturbing others.
That all sounds dandy, but unfortunately includes work and expenses.
So the coming days there might be irregularities in the service from GFF while we copy the content over to the new server and activate it.
I'm glad I've just been fishing for four days, and feel loaded with energy, because this is one of the tasks I hate most about running a large web site: server work! Yuck! I wish it would just run, and I could spend my energy on creating content in stead.
Such is life.
