    New server hardware is in transit, but it may not arrive before the current least expires. Several back-end changes are planned, but really they're not going to affect you and it's more of an academic practice in cluster computing for me.

    If the hardware shows up in time, expect up to 48 hours downtime. If not, the migration will be postponed for a couple of months.

    The hardware likely isn't showing up on time and our current host is apparently having issues with their payment processing. I'm taking backups now to prepare for the worst.

    There's a whirlwind of random bad shit going on in my life right now so we'll see how this plays out. I have incredibly limited time to keep an eye on this and make sure no data is lost if the server lease vaporizes suddenly, but I'll do my best. If the site should go down without notice for an extended period of time, know that I'll get it back up and running when I find the time to do so.
