New Servers Coming Online Monday Night, April 26th, (Site Will be down from 11pm-3am)

Now this is just wonderful news!  Could this really be our last day of multiple goofy messages?  Pretty cool stuff, and thanks for the heads up so that if I am blogging at four in the morning I won't go wacko.

We will be bringing the new servers completely online Monday night, April 26th. This will include four hours where the site will be down. Starting at 11pm Pacific Time and running through 3am Pacific Time you will not be able to access ActiveRain.

After that, things should be functioning MUCH better. We really appreciate the patience everyone has shown these last few weeks. No one has higher expectations of ActiveRain than we do and we are very much looking forward to having the proxy errors behind us.

Thank you everyone for hanging in there with us and (mostly) taking it easy on us as we worked to resolve those pesky proxy errors and bad gateways.

For some reason I fear the "upgrade" will erase all of our account information (including point). This ALWAYS happened to me when working in higher ed!

Pat:  Again, we shall see.  Forgive me if I sound doubtful.  For quite some time early this morning I could not even get ON Active Rain.  So... although I will be cheering them onward... we shall see.

This is great to hear, I am so tired have posting a blog three times and having to delete the others I posted by the error messages.

Must be hard to keep up with a system that experiences such growth

Pat - I am so excited and hope today is the last day I have to deal with the famous Proxy Errors.

Hi Pat and yes this is good news for us all.  I tried to get on around 7:30 a.m. central time but no luck.  Glad it is back up.

It's like having a weight lifted off of our shoulders.  Imagine how good Bob is feeling about it today!

Yay. New servers. I am sure there will be some sour posts on the morrow if this does not pan out. Those poor AR guys- It's not like we pay for this stuff!!!!!

Pat - I certainly hope it's true. It has been a real trial. This morning couldn't even get a screen of AR for hours. We were told two weeks ago that this was happening so I am hopeful it really will.

Hello Pat and I was wondering why I was having trouble the other night, I thought it was the Burmese Government trying to stop Bangkok Bob from posting to AR!
