    Default Scheduled Server Down Time

    Hi Folks,

    We are going to have to shut down the server for some maintenance tonight.

    OrchidTalk will be off-line for 4 to 5 hours. We have not been off-line since the server upgrade in October 2007, so we need to do some important updates.

    If you visit our URL, you will get a white page or 'server not found' message.

    The scheduled down-time will begin at 6:00 p.m. CST (Wednesday, June 4, 2008).

    We will be back online as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience.
    (Please note that Orchid-bids, Casmira, Hard-Steam Photography, and the Orchid Society of the Ozarks websites will also be off-line while we do this maintenance.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Well, we are back on-line again. There may be an issue or two with the time since the server clock had to be reset. Thanks for your patience.

    Cheers,

    Saw that but I figured you were still cracking away at it. We sure had a tough time without our beloved forum; even if it was for only a couple of hours.

    Edit: It seems to be fine now.

    Thanks, Richard. I always get nervous when we do any big updates. LOL.

    Enjoy.

    Hi folks,

    Well, we have finally completed the server optimizations. You should notice a marked increase in load time and speed. I know things were a bit slow for the past couple of days, but I just opened the 'flood' gate and you should zoom through now.

    Thanks for participating in this community. I hope you enjoy it!

    Cheers,
    BD
