    3reef is moving to a new home. A quad core 64 bit palace. This is a huge upgrade over our current server. And it's about to happen. What this means is the site will be down for a few days while the domain transfers. This will happen sometime in the next few days. We apologize for the inconvenience. This is rather scary due to the size of the site and the number of server configurations. However, this is a giant leap ahead for 3reef and will lay the foundation for an all new 3reef site that will go into development once this is done. Hold on to your hats ... and wish us luck. :)

    That's awesome. Best of luck with the transition. Will you give a date and time for when the downtime starts?

    I can't imagine how nerve racking this is Matt. I need to upgrade my tiny platform and I'm scared to pull the trigger.

    Hopefully you'll have smooth sailing. See you on the flip side.

    Nice.

    Heck, I've been as happy as a clam ever since I increased thread dispay option to show 40 posts vs 10!

    Congrats on the new Server. Moving something this large is always a scary proposition. I'm not sure what, but if there's anything I can do to help at this end, just let me know.
