The time has come to move on to better pastures.
Yes, I’m finally changing web hosting companies. Quite soon, in fact. Somewhere around Friday/Saturday-ish. The move shouldn’t be much of an issue, but if you show up intending to read something and find the site… umm… missing… then either you’ve managed to tune in during the transition period or something has gone horribly wrong with the move.
My first priority is getting the stories moved over. That’s just a simple matter of uploading some files and maybe tweaking a PHP setting or two. This blog and the Asylum Walls may take a bit more work, since there are databases that need to be relocated. Once the stories comes back online, expect SOME kind of outage in both of those areas, but hopefully nothing lasting longer than a few hours to a day. All of the @darkicon.com email addresses will likewise be spotty through the weekend. Those who correspond with me regularly have my other addresses.
If something catastrophic occurs (I don’t even know what that might be), my back-up plan is to throw the entire Dark Icon site (minus the blog and forum) up onto the bookofdarkplaces.com until I get whatever it is sorted out. You can check there for news if this thing goes bad.
So there you have it. Short version: Don’t panic if the site disappears this weekend. DO panic if it is still gone on Monday, but I just gave you the fallback location.
