    Heads up, first CCF outage is coming up this weekend. This is to accommodate phase 1 of our CCF upgrade. If all goes well it should be a small outage. This is just a forum migration so no new changes, should be a wee bit quicker.

    The current plan for the CCF V2 upgrade is as follows:

    Phase 1
    Migrate existing CCF to new hardware/VMs on higher spec/higher resiliency infrastructure
    Planned Date: Feb 10/11/12
    Estimated Outage: 2 hours


    Phase 2
    Upgrade CCF forum platform
    Planned Date: TBD (Feb)
    Estimated Outage: 4-6 hours

    Phase 3
    Roll out of new CCF V2 features
    Planned Date: TBD (Feb-Mar)
    Estimated Outage: 30 mins

    So I should hopefully get started with this activity today. Notices have been put up.

    I don't expect as big of an outage as originally stated, at most 30 mins of intermittent downtime. Be patient. I'll post a notice when the migration is completed.

    Lol, enjoy the show, hopefully that was the 3rd and final Act.

    For the techies, don't use IPV6 like ever.... Still... Very broken routing... Oh and you can blame Verizon peering for this....

    Trusty ipv4 (4 cylinders work best).

    Thanks Spence, but there were of course at least 6 people trying to use messaging at the time when this happened. Sod's law. Anyway, I'll be keeping an eye on this. It's a fairly major jump behind the scenes. Next step is the major upgrade and then you'll feel a bunch of new stuff. :)
