Unfortunately, once again my web host is migrating the site to a new server and hence that will mean a period of time where new forum posts will be lost during the data transfer and possibly a period of time where the website wont be accessible. Very annoying and also very stressful for me!

It should be happening next Monday Eastern Australia time but I will confirm closer to the time.

Don't let the stress get to you. Have you considered beer? Wine? Scotch? Deep breathing? Counting to ten over and over again?

I know it's out of your hands, but if there's anything I can do to help let me know.

Bumping this as a reminder there will probably be downtime tomorrow. I haven't been given an exact time the data will be transferred but I understand it will be Sunday evening Los Angeles time and any forum posts made after that will be lost until the new server is ready.
I have temporarily disabled new registrations until the new server is ready.

The server has been switched and registration re-enabled.
@bee-liever is see your most recent forum posts have been lost - I can send the text to you if needed.

Can anyone confirm whether they needed a certificate error displayed in your browser and you needed to use Advanced settings in the browser to bypass that?

I needed nothing. I hit my bookmark and since I always stay logged in, I got to the site where I left off yesterday. No issues.

I've been receiving them (or most of them) seemingly without interruption since the update to the server.
