FORUM UPGRADE:
MartialTalk will be down for maintainence and software upgrading this Sunday (Jan 13th. 2002).

I am not certain of the time right now, or the duration of the outage. I'm hoping to start at noon EST and be finished by 3pm EST.


SERVER RELOCATION
On Saturday, January 19, 2002 the server on which MartialTalk is located will be moved to a new data center.

Due to the nature of the move, we will be doing a -full- backup of the forum at Midnight EST on Friday, January 18th, 2002.

As a result, Martialtalk will be unavailable from Midnight EST on Friday, January 18th, 2002 until Noon EST Sunday, January 20th, 2002.

We anticipate no dataloss, and a much more stable and robust connection.

If you have any questions about this move or the upgrades, please feel free to email or post.

Thank you,
Kaith

Hey, thanks Kaith!

The server update time happens to be during a day I'm working, and the server move happens to be when I'll be out of town. You're so considerate :)
