System downtime moved up

Post by Steve Sokolowski » Tue Mar 24, 2020 9:37 am

The major system downtime previously scheduled for April 12 is likely to be moved up to this week, perhaps to as early as Thursday.

We plan to move the servers to the new location as soon as possible, given the deteriorating situation. With the number of cases likely to be higher months from now, it may not be as safe as it is now for 12 months, and the least risky option is to get the servers moved as soon as possible. While telecommunications and hosting are exempt from the business closures in Pennsylvania, we don't know what the Federal government will do. We worry that we will be unable to travel to the current hosting location if the servers crash and need to be maintained, possibly resulting in the end of the business.

We will post a notice on twitter and the forums 12 hours before the downtime will start; at this time, we aren't able to provide an exact start time. We expect all services to be offline for 24-36 hours. You can read the previous post at viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7074 to find out what we will be improving during this downtime.

Please set a backup pool in the case that we need to move quickly on this issue.

Is the website or forums also going offline or are the web servers unaffected by the move?

Where is Chris Sokolowski ? I didn't see him for a while.
Wanna see some exciting and interesting cloud mining contract which is different to Hashflare or Genesis Mining? Here is the site I trust.
