Please plan for downtime on Sunday, February 12 as we transition FMVperformance Automotive Community forums to a new server. Please check this announcement again later in the week for a link to where you will find continuously updated information over the course of that day.

In the meantime, we hope you will all remember that we are always seeking donations, as we drastically increase our monetary commitment to this forum: http://www.fmvperformance.com/index.php?MenuItem=9

Is anything going to change with this new server?

Thanks for the new purchase.

It'll depend on your ISP. Since we have to switch the DNS servers over, your ISP needs to reload the servers. The actual switch will take a couple hours, but your ISP needs to reload the DNS servers, which can take up to 24 hours.

I'm not 100% sure this is going to happen Sunday, btw - just that's what I plan on.

The IP wouldn't help - the forum itself uses the domain.

As some of you may have noticed, I just had the forums down for a few hours... unfortunately I was not able to complete the transition in that time - sometime this afternoon (Sunday, the 12th) we'll hopefully take the forums down again and finish it.

Yes, yes it is :) And super expensive, too.

Anyway, some people seem to still have some problems accessing the site... I'd like people try out the following 4 URL's and tell me if they have problems (and substitute any of our domains for the sites you want):

Same here, and I'm on the other side of the continent. I believe we can all say :

"Hooray! The forum works again! Slaughter the fatted calf!"

Did the new server come equipped with a turbo?  :shock: Page loads and overall response times are vastly improved.  :goodjob:

No, it won't explode. But it looks like it's throttle body has been grounded. :)
