Impending Doom

The hosting company that I use, sent me an e-mail this evening offering a free upgrade to their new service plan. The costs are the same but the benefits are greater. First, the new plan will be faster. The hardware is newer and faster, the software is newer and faster. Linux 2.4 running Apache 2, instead of Linux 2.2 running Apache 1.3. Second, I get more bandwidth per month and cheaper additional bandwidth. Finally, I get more storage space.

The only downside is that I have to move from the trusty server that I have used since I signed up with this provider. My ip address will change sometime in the coming week and my web-site will be unreachable while the DNS changes propogate. Anywhere from 12 to 24 hours depending on your DNS server configuration.

If you can’t find this site in the coming week, be patient and try back later.
