Server move over next 24hrs – some downtime predicted

imageWe are now progressing to moving all our data to a new server and updating our service for everyone. So that everyone is aware this will mean some downtime while the data is copied over and the site software is all upgraded/updated.

The projected timeline is as follows:

  • 30/03/2010 2200hrs GMT server forums locked.
  • 30/03/2010 2200-0400hrs GMT server data copied to new system.
  • 30/03/2010 0400-1200hrs GMT all services and software upgraded.
  • 31/03/2010 ~2100hrs GMT new server verified and double checked as working. Nameserver/DNS records are then updated to point to new server. Old server traffic directed to new system.
  • 31/03/2010 ~2200hrs GMT server forums unlocked.

There’s a whole heap to do in the new move as we are having a 3 year old software set upgraded. The server core software, the hosting software on top of that and the site code on top of that will all be upgraded and updated.

This will mean (fingers crossed) that we have a much faster and efficient setup, set to expand and support the demands of the ever increasing traffic.

News posts: News posts will be added to the server up until everything is locked for backup (the site will be viewable as normal but we won’t update anything). We will then wait for the backup to complete and afterwards continue to update news on the old server and the service posts to let you know how the update is going.

Send in your news as usual to us, we’ll work on what we can when we can at the usual fast pace.

Forums: Forums will only be unlocked once the new server is up and running. Otherwise any posts made will be lost after the move (we can copy news posts over).

Stay tuned for updates folks!

Sunday Skirmishing – The Citadel is open every Sunday that we do not have a big operation planned for all day skirmishing. This is a great chance to come on down, practice your skills, sort your kit out, have some serious 6mm fun, and stay out of the weather as we are an all-weather facility!

No Airsoft for NJ?

Over at No Airsoft for Old Men Tim Ellwood has blogged a worrying read about how the law may change in NJ for Airsoft and the legislation amendment in New Jersey which will classify airsoft weapons as firearms:

I know that this is they way it is to a degree in the UK, but it just starting now in the US

Please see my blog post

http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/2010/Bills/S0500/454_I1.HTM

(No Airsoft for Old Men)

Quote from the site:

Airsoft guns are already restricted in NJ, we have done training evolutions with a navy unit up there in the past and it is always a nightmare traveling up with the training guns and gear.

If you read the bill, it is a clarification, most areas up there already treat them as firearms,  What I take umbrage to is the fact that they are making a law that makes something that’s not a "firearm" into a firearm… (No Airsoft for Old Men)
