    MartialTalk will be undergoing some hardware upgrades shortly, estimated down time should be under 30 minutes.

    If you like the site and aren't already a supporting member, please consider becoming one. 12 new SM's will help us pay for this round of improvements, which we hope will increase performance and eliminate the brown outs and 'too busy' notices some members have been getting.

    Thank you.

    Bob -- you aware of the issue some other vBulletin sites are having? Apparently an add in was a major hack job.

    Reminder that Martial Talk will be offline at some point between 7pm and 9pm NY time for hardware upgrades. Estimated downtime is 30-45 minutes. No need to worry about things, it's a routine upgrade.

    Couple of problems were encountered requiring additional hardware replacement. Everything should be good now. Let me know if you encounter any hiccups or 'server too busy' notices.

    Pretty much, and I don't use the server for that, if I did that that is. :D

    I don't know if the hardware was a speed upgrade, but it does seemto be faster searching for new articles and such now.

    Basically, everything except the hard drives was replaced and more memory installed.
