Migration Alert + Your Support

Posted 04-07-2012 at 03:48 PM by Alex Pepple
Dear Eratosphereans,

We're being forced to move - that is, move the server and all the data. To explain what's going on in layman's terms, the bigger hosting company that's just acquired the one that had been hosting the server wants to shut down the facilities they've just acquired: they have handed out an eviction notice to transfer everything over to their own facilities proper in a month or so, or else.... The problem is that they're not lifting a finger to help so, I'm completely on my own on this!

Thus, this is just a heads-up to everyone that there's the likelihood that things will be in flux at the Eratosphere for an indeterminate amount of time in the near future as I figure out how to move that huge amount of data and services and web connectivity, etc. etc.; and, whether to stay with this company despite their pushy ways (since their service is very reliable), or look for something else to move the Eratosphere server to. I'm hoping the move will eventually happen non-destructively, and with little or no glitches. However, when we eventually reach the final switching point, there is the possibility of the loss of about a days worth of the most recent data. If that's the case, I'll post a special warning at that time.

Furthermore, this migration has the making of an expensive project. Since donations have dried up for an endless number months now, which means that I've been, as usual, carrying all the financial burden on my own, then this is a good time to remind those can or are willing to, of the need to support Able Muse/Eratosphere per all the 'donate' links on the Sphere pages, or the sticky thread here.
