As part of the planned improvements for RIBnet I will be moving the forums to a new server sometime this weekend.
The major benefit will be the reliability of the new host, which is much more resiliant than the forums' current home so should avoid any major downtime in the future.
I have done a dummy run of the move and it went very smoothly, so I don't anticipate any major problems. There is 300MB of data to move though, so it will take a little while! I expect the forums to be closed for a maximum of 2 hours.
Thanks in advance for your patience
