My site is moving so could go down for a short while

I have just completed the move of my site to the new dedicated host. Finally! with lots of trips away over the last month it has taken some time to get the new site up and running. I just have not had the time to do it. Over the last few evenings I have been copying the site and setting up Apache and testing. I have just asked the ISP to alter the DNS settings to point to the new site. I am not sure when they will do this or how long it will take. I expect my site to go into a black hole for a short while.

I have blocked the forum on the new host - just set the maintainance mode. I have left it open on this old server so people can still access and post. Then as soon as the new server is operational I will copy the forum over again and close it on the old host and open it on the new.

The whole of the old site will then be deleted.

Initially its the same site as on the old host but that will change very soon. I am going to move the blog to either wordpress or movable type and also enhance the news aggregator. I also plan to open the wiki i have had for a while in the background. I will announce exactly whats planned for that soon. I also plan to move the site to a CSS based approach and to try and get it to standards level. Also thanks to those who responded previously to my call for writers and international authors and moderators. I will open up some foreign language boards on the forum and also there will be some new Oracle security bloggers here.

OK, thats it for now, see you on the new server...
