Server Migration

As you are already likely to be aware, following the purchase of Planetarion by Fubra, we are required to migrate our services from Jolt's servers to Fubra's. Unfortunately, this cannot wait until the current round has finished, and I'm scheduling the migration to happen on Wednesday 25th February.

Unfortunately, the migration will require the game to be inaccessible for a period of time, to ensure data consistency. This will result in a planned window of 1 hour during which the game will neither be accessible nor ticking.

20:00 GMT - This tick (and all previous to it) will occur as normal.
20:30 GMT - The game will be closed, and I will migrate the game.
21:00 GMT - The game will not tick.
21:30 GMT - All having gone according to plan, the game will reopen, running on Fubra servers.
22:00 GMT - The game will tick and continue as if nothing happened.

The game, at both sides of the migration, will be accessible by the same URL: http://game.planetarion.com. However, some DNS servers may be slow to notice the update, so if you have problems accessing the game following the migration, try the URL http://fubra1.planetarion.com (you might want to write this down now just in case!).

I'm sorry for this interruption to your round, but there is no way around the migration; however the migration should herald a new era of reliable servers!
