Hi all,

We have succesfully completed Step 1 of our server move, a transition to a new version of the database we are using. This was necessary for a number of reasons, but mainly because it is FAR more flexible with foreign characters. As it is now Unicode compliant, it will accept pretty much any language you throw at it, Russian, Japanese, etc..

We were down for about 15 minutes to make this change.

You should notice no real difference, except perhaps a few Japanese/Russian posts ;)

Next step is the move to the new server! There's no need for any downtime there though.

Had she been - I would have been getting regular e-mails from her asking what the hell was going on. (Yeah, like I'm in the loop!)
