We've only gone and outgrown our server again, haven't we? With the growth of the membership, the database that holds all our waffle, the Walkaround section, reviews, space taken up serving all the data securely, and general size of the forum, we're full. I also think we need a bit more processing power, so we're taking the opportunity to move to a newer server with more cores, a faster clock (makes the day go quicker!), and four times the storage we have now. As you can possibly remember if you've been around long enough, this will mean we'll be down for a wee while, mainly to prevent any of our gibberish from being lost during the move of the data, but also to give us a static picture of the site to take a copy of. We're not 100% certain when this will be for obvious reasons, and we'll try to give you as much warning as possible, but you will have to find something else to do for a little while during the process, so start thinking of things so you don't have to interact with family members, colleagues or other nearby people. You could perhaps take up a hobby, or print off a sign that warns people you're having Britmodeller Withdrawals, and not to approach you suddenly in case they startle you. Whatever you decide to do while we're offline, you can be sure that we'll be goading the hamsters as hard as possible in order to be back online as soon as we can. Now might be as good a time to remind you that we've always admired you, and think that you're one of life's excellent people. Yes... we want something from you Many of you have donated in the past to help support the costs of our server, and some of you even donate regularly, which is a huge help. The coffers have become somewhat deflated over the last year however, due in part to the exchange rate of the £ being dans le toilette, but also probably because the donate button isn't as prominent as it once was. Just in case you've no idea where it is now, and you haven't spent up over Christmas, here's where you'll find it - top right of the screen on Desktop, at least Watch this space for more info down the line. Wish us luck!
