Hi folks,

Just to let you know that Helitorque will shortly be migrating to another server to keep up with it's growing member base and traffic volume!

Unfortunately this means the site may go down for a while over the next couple of days. I hope you can live without us for just a little while... we hope this will sort out some of the slow speed issues you may have been having lately.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year and hope to be back online as quickly as possible!

Best wishes!

Sarah

Well that's inconsiderate WG - you could have done it over Christmas Day and Boxing Day when it was quiet on here! Laughing Or indeed tonight when everyone is out partying...

That is actually the plan, but a DNS change can take up to 48 hours so I don't have that much control over when it will actually go down!

Besides, better I do it when I have two days off to monitor it in case anything goes wrong, otherwise it could be down for ages and you'll all die of boredom without it! Laughing

Double edged sword... you could end up with lots and lots of unnecessary network traffic!

I did try and get at the site this morning while it was down, so assumed something must be up... it is noticeably faster now though Sarah! Well done.

not entirely sure what all that was about, but thanks for your efforts keeping us all up and running! Since I started flying I've been surprised how...er...aggressive...many helicopter forums can be, so really happy to have found this one! Very Happy

Glad about that. Hopefully this new server will support the traffic better.

Interestingly enough the performance of the site has been pretty good on this side of the pond. Must be due to the time difference. But I do admire the quality of this place. Thanks for all the effort you put in it!

Oh, yeah... Happy New Years as well!

Thank you for all the positive feedback! It was certainly far less painful than the last time I moved the site (about 2 years ago) so just glad it went smoothly and that we were only down for a minimal time.

Have a great 2009!

Sarah
